Forget about all of those rumors that have been swirling - Sookie is back and will be better than ever in Netflix's Gilmore Girls reboot!

Melissa McCarthy revealed that even though her schedule was too full to take part in the reunion, she's coming back anyway.

"It is really exciting. There has been something that I've been asked about so, so many times and it hasn't worked out," McCarthy, 45, said during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. "They're making four new movies of the Gilmore Girls, which is a show that was near and dear to my heart for four years and we could not get those schedules to work."

She then went on to say that they weren't lying when they thought she wouldn't be able to come back to the show.

She went on to explain that fortunately it all worked out.

"There was a whole thing and I was going to be out of the country," said McCarthy. "And literally about an hour and a half ago we figured out that I am gonna go back and do it! And I am so excited!"

Many people lamented the loss of Sookie, who was a favorite character for so many people. She even recently told magazines that she didn't think she would be able to do it.

"I would be very surprised if that happens," the Boss star said to People when she was asked if she would even make a guest cameo.

"I don't think I am," she said. "I didn't actually get asked to do it. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was."

Still, she now said that it looks like she will be able to do it:

"They're gonna be amazing. Amy Sherman Palladino's gonna squeeze me in to do it and I'm very happy to go back to Star's Hollow," she said. "I'm just really excited about that. So, it just happened; I got asked a lot about it. As of not even two hours ago, it's happening."
