The window of opportunity for Sookie has closed. For now. Melissa McCarthy said she will not return for Netflix's "Gilmore Girls" revival, although she's glad it's happening. It sounds like, from her perspective anyway, it was just a big misunderstanding.
There was a lot of back-and-forth online about Sookie's inclusion in the revival, and McCarthy recently had dinner with Yanic Truesdale, who is returning as Michel, so that renewed some speculation.
So, while interviewing McCarthy about her new movie "The Boss,"E! asked if she's returning as Sookie or what.
McCarthy: "I don't think I am. You know what, I didn't actually get asked to do it."
E!: "That's weird."
McCarthy: "It is. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was busy. If it would've -- I'm actually thrilled that it's happening. I loved that show, and I think the fans for that show are super loyal and great and I will watch every single one of them."
E! brought up that there's always the possibility of Season 2, and she said you never know. "I want to cook again. I want to put salt and then stir." More seriously, she just closed by saying, "That was seven years of my life and it was really great. I was proud of that show."
If they do pull a "Fuller House" and order a second season, maybe McCarthy will return, at least for a cameo.
