Melissa McCarthy Shared a Rare Tribute to 'Gilmore Girls' & It's Giving Stars Hollow in Fall Vibes

Melissa McCarthy is taking a walk down memory lane in Stars Hollow, and we’re feeling just as nostalgic as she is.

In celebration of Gilmore Girls’ 22nd anniversary, McCarthy shared a sweet tribute to her former co-stars and lifelong GG fans on her Instagram. The star, who played Sookie alongside Lauren Graham‘s Lorelai, posted a photo of the two women on set two decades ago, arms tightly wrapped around each other, writing “Happy Stars Hollow season to all those who celebrate!! How was this 22 years ago?!”

The hilarious actress’s nostalgia trip didn’t end there — McCarthy shared another post, this time with a photo of herself, Graham, and actor Yanic Truesdale, who played the snarky but lovable bed and breakfast concierge, Michel.

In her caption, she wrote about a funny behind-the-scenes moment, sharing, “I remember someone (randomly) saying Yanic’s French accent was terrible — we laughed so hard — he had only spoken English for like 10 months. He had ONLY spoken French his entire life.” She added a laughable, “Also I had no idea I was this short?!”

And if you thought her Stars Hollow musings ended there, rejoice: McCarthy shared a final photo, this one of her and Graham at the beloved Luke’s Diner, with a loving shoutout to her on-screen bestie: “I have no idea how LG did all that dialog — she was amazing!!”

In very appropriate Gilmore Girls fashion, where McCarthy led, Truesdale followed by sharing his own nostalgic post in honor of the show’s anniversary. Alongside a screengrab of the three actors in character for a scene, Truesdale wrote, “Happy birthday Gilmore Girls! Has it been 22 years already?! What a treat that those two wonderful ladies have become friends for life!”
