The "Ghostbusters" actress appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to break the news, saying she wasn't aware of the change until less than two hours before taping.

"Literally about an hour and a half ago we figured out that I am gonna go back and do it and I am so excited. And [the episodes] are gonna be amazing," McCarthy said.

"[Creator] Amy Sherman-Palladino is going to squeeze me in to do it and I'm very happy to go back to Stars Hollow."

"I'm just really excited about that. So it just happened. And I got asked a lot about it, and as of not even two hours ago, it's happening," she added.

McCarthy appeared on "Gilmore Girls" in the early 2000s as Sookie St. James, main character Lorelai's best friend.

She will return to the show alongside Lorelai's Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel.

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.
