Michael Ausiello, for TVLine:

After months of will-she or won’t-she speculation, Melissa McCarthy has agreed to reprise her role as Sookie in Netflix’s forthcoming Gilmore Girls revival

McCarthy is set to make the news official on Friday’s Ellen (scroll down to watch clip). “I’m going to go back and do it,” she enthusiastically told DeGeneres. “[Series creator] Amy Sherman-Palladino is going to squeeze me in to do it. I’m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow.”

While I don’t think Gilmore Girls would have been completely lost without her, it’s nice to know she’s back.[1]

  1. She was never my favorite character, anyways.
