Find Out What Lauren Graham Says About Melissa McCarthy’s Gilmore Girls Return
It may seem like we’ve been waiting forever for the return of the Gilmore Girls (haven’t we?!), but there’s no doubt that it will be worth it when we get to return to Stars Hollow on November 25. And though we’ve been focusing on Rory’s love-life and Lorelai’s sitch with Luke, other characters are coming back to join the fun, including one of our very faves, Sookie St. James. Sookie was played by Melissa McCarthy, who has found wild success since the end of the show, and Lauren Graham (AKA Lorelai) had some pretty sweet things to say about her friend’s return to the beloved series.
“You know, the way these things come together is so circuitous and she’s so busy,” Lauren said of Melissa while chatting with ET. But when McCarthy confirmed that she would be able to fit the reboot into her schedule, Lauren says, “It was the final piece of the puzzle to make sure that the show felt whole. That all of its important players were there, except for Ed [Herrmann, who played Richard Gilmore], but it was great to have her there.”
When it finally came time to join each other on set again, Lauren says, “It was just great. [We] got to hang out after and it’s like [Alexis was] saying, you have a foundation with these people, so anything else is just icing on the cake.”
We can’t wait for a taste of that cake!
