[Blind Gossip] If you were a fan of this television show that was popular last decade, you are probably excited that there is going to be limited revival of the show and its characters!
However, one character will be missing. We know why.
While [the producers] would love to have her back, she has become too big a star. Her salary would be more than the entire rest of the cast put together! Producers can’t afford it. However, they are trying to get her to agree to be in just one scene for old time’s sake. They’re even willing to work around her film schedule to do it.
The actress has great respect for the show’s creator, so we hope they are able to work something out… even if it is just a one-scene cameo!

[Optional] Will you watch the revival of the show?
Actress: Melissa McCarthy
Television Show: Gilmore Girls
Melissa McCarthy WILL join the Gilmore Girls revival after all!
The character she played on the original series, Sookie, is now being written into the limited Netflix series. From Deadline:
Melissa McCarthy Says Yes To ‘Gilmore Girls’ After All
For the last couple of months it’s looked like it wasn’t going to happen, but Melissa McCarthy is returning to Star Hollow after all and will be reprising her role as Sookie on Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. McCarthy went public with the news during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her latest comedy pic Boss, explaining that severe scheduling conflicts needed to be dealt with first. “Literally about an hour ago, we figured out that I am gonna go back and do it!”, she said to loud cheers from the crowd.
Isn’t it an amazing coincidence that Melissa McCarthy’s scheduling and money issues were settled exactly one hour before her promotional TV appearance… for her film that opens TODAY?
If you believe that, you probably also believe that George Clooney will be appearing in the Facts of Life revival just for the sentimental value of it all.
