This is some sad news, Gilmore Girls fans.
Earlier, Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show’s creator, discussed the fact that she would love to have Melissa McCarthy – who played Sookie St. James – return for Netflix‘s revival. Now, it seems like McCarthy herself has a different version of what’s been going on.
McCarthy took to Twitter on Tuesday, in response to a tweet from a fan, and said that “no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow.”
Here’s the full tweet:
Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!! https://t.co/II2Atug4wx

Sherman-Palladino has assured everyone that Sookie’s absence will be explained properly should the A-list star choose not to return. But, it seems like there’s some sort of miscommunication going on behind-the-scenes.
I just hope for the sake of Gilmore Girls fans everywhere that Sookie makes her way back to Stars Hollow for one last hurrah!
