Melissa McCarthy Has Some Mega Exciting News About Gilmore Girls
Remember Gilmore Girls? Of course you do. It was that show where everyone talked 170 times faster than is humanly possible, in a town where wit was valued over breathing and full stops.
It introduced us to many a fine actor, including Mike & Molly's Melissa McCarthy, one of the stand-out comedy stars of the last decade. And you probably miss it, very, very much.
Well, you're in luck. Our Mel went on Ellen the other day, and guess what: Gilmore Girls is coming back to our screens!
Amy Sherman-Palladino had earlier told Entertainment Weekly that she wanted McCarthy back for a reboot, saying: "I know what the scene is. I'll pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out," she told the publication. "I can get her in and out in two hours. If she finds that time, I don’t care when it is, we will make it happen."
And McCarthy broke the news to Ellen. "Literally about an hour and a half ago, we figured out that I’m going to go back and do it, and I am so excited," she said. Watch the clip below:
