Will Melissa McCarthy return for Gilmore Girls revival?

Gilmore Girls fans were delighted to hear over the weekend that the series will return on Netlfix, after rumours of a revival have been circulating for months. It was confirmed that Lauren Graham, who played Lorelai, and Alexis Bledel, who played Rory, are both returning, along with Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.

However there is a question mark over a few cast members who have since went on to success after the series, most notably being Melissa McCarthy, who played Lorelai's lovable best friend Sookie.

Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had recently said McCarthy had an open invitation to return, telling TVline; "She’s really f—ing busy. But the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene. Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.”

Although Melissa last night tweeted below;


So she hasn't even been asked apparently, or else somebody hasn't passed the message on. Or maybe they just assumed the Bridesmaid star had better plans than going back to hang out in Stars Hollow for the day. If you ask us though, it won't be the same without Sookie.

Somebody ask her back already!
