HOLLYWOOD, CA – Stars Hollow without Sookie? Not anymore!
Melissa McCarthy confirmed on Ellen, which airs on Friday, that she is returning.
She said that there originally was a scheduling conflict to film the four 90-minute episodes, but it has been resolved.
Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said months ago that they wanted to work McCarthy into the shows, if she had the time, given her very busy schedule.
It’s not clear when McCarthy will start filming her scenes, the rest of the series started filming February 2nd in Los Angeles.
