At the time of the reboot's announcement, McCarthy claimed the show's creators did not invite her back.
The creators said they believed she would be too busy and said they would absolutely put her in if she had time.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of McCarthy's announcement, creator Palladino said she still hoped the actress can make it back.
Actor Yanic Truesdale, who is returning to the series as Michel Gerard, stated, "She's a friend, we see each other a lot and I love her to death. There's nothing I would like more than having her back on set, but it's completely out of my control. Her schedule is her schedule."
"Gilmore Girls" will return on Netflix in the form of four 90-minute episodes.
