Melissa McCarthy tweeted on Tuesday that she wasn’t asked to be a part of the Gilmore Girls revival.
But show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told TVLine in an interview posted on Monday — before McCarthy's tweet — that she did not write Sookie into the reboot in a major plotline because McCarthy "just simply wouldn’t have that sort of time."
However, she suggests in that interview that she had asked about McCarthy’s availability, saying, "If she has a spare moment to run over, we would be totally game."
