'Gilmore Girls' Creator Wants Sookie St. James Back For The Netflix Revival, Obviously
Melissa McCarthy, this is my first and final plea for you to return for the Gilmore Girls revival. Listen, I know your schedule is super jam-packed (I get it. Being a hilarious and coveted film actress can be time consuming), but I really think that Sookie St. James would be disappointed if you weren't there. Really. In all seriousness, even your homegirl, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, would settle for a quick guest appearance. According to TV Line, Palladino confirmed that the Gilmore Girls revival wants Sookie to appear, and this is no surprise at all.
“She’s really f—ing busy...But the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene," said Palladino. "Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.” Sure, as of right now, there's no Sookie St. James story line, but I'm sure we could whip something up. (Palladino, I'm for hire). Anyway, if somehow you aren't convinced that McCarthy should return, I think I know someone who could make a pretty good case for this: Sookie St. James herself.
1. Because She Agrees, Not Having Sookie Would Be Crazy
A Gilmore Girls revival without Sookie? Definitely crazy.
2. Because We're All Going To Cry If She Doesn't Come Back
Actual tears might be shed.
3. Or Will We Laugh? Sometimes It's Hard To Tell
No one understands this fine line like Sookie St. James.
4. Because Thinking Of Sookie Not Being There Makes Us "Smad"
Smad. Sad + mad. Again, Sooke St. James, a woman who understands emotions.
5. Because It Really Is All Or Nothing
Bring the whole crew, or not at all, Sparky.
6. Because Sookie Gets It
If we know Sookie won't be there, this is what we'll be doing. Keep 'em coming!
7. No Really, She Gets It
Who else will understand how good margaritas are?
8. Because A Gilmore Girls Revival Without Sookie Is Just Not OK
My thoughts exactly.
9. Because We Need To Hear About The Happenings In Her Home
It's time to catch up.
10. Because She Just Has To Be There
I guess she just has to be. How else will we understand stories like this?
11. Because Super Cool Sookie Needs To Bid Us A Super Cool Adieu
It's the final wrap up we all need, and Sookie's presence is required.
Whew. I'm glad we got that all sorted out. And now we wait.
