Not every show gets a do-over at an ending, but that's exactly what Gilmore Girls is getting with Netflix's Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, according to Melissa McCarthy.

McCarthy, who received the Gilda Radner Award for Innovation in Comedy at Gilda's Club at New York City's Gildafest'16, told E! News it's a great idea that "Amy Sherman-Palladino gets to finish it the way she always saw in her head."

"When else do you get a chance to do that? I mean, the odds are so ridiculous. You don't get to redo your ending like that. I think it's a great idea. I think it's the right time to do it and I think people are going to be really happy with it," McCarthy told us.

But McCarthy's return to Gilmore Girls almost didn't happen. Creator and executive producer Sherman-Palladino said McCarthy was too busy to return as Sookie St. James, but then McCarthy said she was never asked. After a series of back and forths in the press and on social media, McCarthy announced she would return to Stars Hollow once again. Details about her scene are being kept under wraps, but Sookie returned to Stars Hollow, that's for sure.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will premiere on Netflix later in 2016. McCarthy joined Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Matt Czuchry, Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki and more famous veterans for a return to Stars Hollow.
