Melissa McCarthy's Reaction to the Final Four Words on 'Gilmore Girls' Was the Same as Yours

"It's like, 'Is that the last four words?'"

If the final four words of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life left you wondering if that could really be the ending creator Amy Sherman-Palladino spent years teasing, you're not alone. Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie St. James on the WB hit and (briefly) on the Netflix reboot, felt the exact same way.

While it's nice to know McCarthy is with fans who felt weird about Gilmore Girls finale, she also broke some not-so-good news about her future with the series. With rumors of another Netflix season swirling, McCarthy finally addressed Sookie's future in Stars Hollow.

"No [I wouldn't come back as Sookie], but I would come back as Lorelai," she said, crushing the hopes of Sookie fans everywhere. "And that is a challenge to Lauren Graham."
