When Netflix announced that “Gilmore Girls” are coming back for another season every news portal wrote about it. We knew that Melissa won’t be part of the revival crew but everybody assumed that the reason was her being too famous for supporting role.
However it turns out that nobody even asked her to bring Sookie back one more time, including Amy Sherman-Palladino who created the show. This is what Melissa wrote on her Twitter account, as a respond to her fans who asked her to come back: “Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!!”
But when Sherman-Palladino spoke for TV line she said that crew reached for the McCarthy asking her to come back: “She’s really fucking busy. But the thing I have said 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— 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.”
So we are not quite sure who to believe but we know one thing for sure – Sookie was very important part of the show and many fear that the revival without her won’t be what it should be. It would be something Lesley Abravanel wrote on her Twitter: “No Sookie=sucky.” It could all be just one big misunderstanding, and we still hope that they will work it out, luckily they still have enough time to do so.
