2016 Time 100 Gala, Time's Most Influential People In The World - Red CarpetWe're waiting on pins and needles for the premiere of Netflix's "Gilmore Girls" revival later this year, and according to the recently-confirmed-to-return Melissa McCarthy, Stars Hollow is just as magical as ever.

In an interview with Us Weekly, McCarthy dished about going back to her old stomping grounds (a.k.a. the Warner Bros. lot), and according to the actress, it was an emotional experience.

"I went back and visited about two weeks ago and saw the sets again and everybody on them and it just felt — oh, my God, I get so sentimental," McCarthy told the magazine. "It felt like the greatest idea in the world. It was just lovely. It was just lovely."

The actress didn't divulge any details about how her character, kooky chef Sookie St. James, would fit into the revival, which will feature four 90-minute episodes. McCarthy only just revealed that she would indeed be back, after lots of back and forth between her and "Gilmore" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino over whether or not the actress was even asked back in the first place.

But that's all water under the bridge now, since McCarthy and co. found a way to make it work out, and she'll appear in what's likely to be a small cameo sometime during the revival. (There's no word yet on which of the four episodes she'll pop up in, or how the show will explain the extended absence of Lorelai's BFF and business partner.)

Regardless of how much Sookie we'll be getting, we're grateful that we'll be seeing her -- and the rest of the "Gilmore" gang -- at all. There's nothing more lovely than that.
