Quirky chef Sookie has not been asked to return to the Stars Hollow kitchen in the anticipated revival of Gilmore Girls.

Netflix announced the revival of the TV series but left out the crucial actress Melissa McCarthy, who plays the bubbly chef.

While devastated fans are coming to terms with the news, the show's creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told TV Line that an offer for McCarthy is on the cards.

"She's really F***ing busy," the series creator tells TV Line. "But the thing I have said (to her team) is, 'Look if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I'll write her a scene.


"Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over - even if for just a cameo - we would be totally game.

"If it's a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out," she adds.The actress and comedian quickly rose to fame, and has since played in a number of hit movies including The Heat, Bridesmaids and Spy.

But contrary to reports, the Tammy star says she has not been asked to return.
