Melissa McCarthy just confirmed that she will be returning to the Gilmore Girls revival!

While making an appearance on The Ellen Show, the 45-year-old actress explained that just hours earlier, she and showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino figured out they could make scheduling work.

“It is really exciting. There has been something that I have been asked about so, so many times and it hasn’t worked out…And there was a whole thing. And then I was gonna be out of the country and blah, blah, blah. And literally about an hour and half ago we figured out that I’m gonna go back and do it and I am so excited. And they are gonna be amazing,” she explained.

Melissa added, “Amy Sherman-Palladino is going to squeeze me in to do it and I’m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow…I’m just really excited about that. So it just happened and I got asked a lot about it and as of not even two hours ago it’s happening.”

The exciting news came just after Amy Sherman-Palladino said that Melissa most likely wouldn’t be making a return.

We’re so glad it worked out! Watch Melissa make the announcement below…

'Gilmore Girls' Showrunner Reveals Why She Didn't Officially Ask Melissa McCarthy Back

Amy Sherman-Palladino has commented on why she didn’t officially ask Melissa McCarthy to return for the Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix.

“I’ve been told by her people for months, “Can’t happen. Can’t happen. Can’t happen,” Amy, Gilmore Girls creator, told EW. “This business of people and managers and reps. There are a lot of layers and you can’t really get to people and you don’t know how things are being conveyed and who’s talking on your behalf. All I can tell the fans is we love her. She was a big part of the show … There’s nothing juicy or hidden here. It’s a matter of she’s one of the top working actresses in films today and we are very proud of her.”

“We’ve just put it out in the universe: We’re here until May 10. I know what the scene is. I’ll pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out. I can get her in and out in two hours. If she finds that time, I don’t care when it is, we will make it happen,” Amy added, saying there’s still some hope Melissa could reprise her role as Sookie!

Earlier this year, Melissa revealed that she wasn’t officially asked to return.

On the show, the 45-year-old comedian and her hubby competed in their own version of the Food Network’s Chopped, called “Smooshed.”

The couple had to create a meal out of salted crackers, marshmallows, bacon bits, and things from the break room fridge.

“My bouche is more than amused,” Stephen said after eating their gross creations. LOL! “My bouche is infuriated at this point. It’s shocked, chagrined, and somewhat humiliated.”

“Watching [women] become friends and then essentially become family, that’s the kind of thing I root for when I watch a movie,” Melissa told Bust magazine. “I want to see that. I love to show women and girls uniting. I love showing that because I think so often in movies, you see women just fighting and not liking each other. That’s not real life. That’s not the norm.”
