Gilmore Girls revival: Melissa McCarthy gets into character in set photo

Posted on

From the second we learned that Melissa McCarthy would reprise her role as Sookie St. James in Netflix’s upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, officially titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we’ve been imagining Sookie throwing around orders in the kitchen of the Dragonfly Inn.

And now, thanks to Gilmore Girls costume supervisor Brenda Maben, we have an even better picture of McCarthy’s triumphant return. On Saturday, Maben posted a photo on her Instagram that assured us that Sookie will be reunited with her trusty bandana headband. Furthermore, we also get a glimpse at Michel (Yanic Truesdale), who is wearing a suit and looking more than ready to work the front desk (and pass judgment on passersby).
