Are you sitting down? You may want to be. Or stand up because you’re about to leap for joy.

Melissa McCarthy is officially going to be on the Netflix Gilmore Girls revival as Sookie St. James! The official announcement will come on Ellen DeGeneres’ show this afternoon.

According to the announcement on Ellen, it took a while to get everyone’s schedules to work out but McCarthy states, “they’re going to squeeze me in to do it…I’m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow.”

I couldn’t be more excited!
