We can take one name off our list of missing actors from Gilmore Girls! Jackson Douglas, who played Jackson Belleville and husband to our beloved Sookie, is returning to Stars Hollow for the Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: Seasons.
Jackson himself announced the news on Twitter today:
“I got my GG script today! Hooray! Hey that rhymes!”
Of course, the news that Jackson will be returning has us asking even more fervently: Where is Sookie??!!
There has still been no news about the possible return of Melissa McCarthy. Melissa says she was not invited, though Amy Sherman-Palladino previously expressed interest in having her for even a short role. Despite the good intentions there, it’s clear that Sookie was not written into the script as a major role.
And we have SO many questions about the revealing photo of Sookie & Jackson’s house… perhaps, with the confirmation of Jackson’s return, that offers us some clues?? Could Sookie be away in the UK, but Jackson still be holding down the fort? Or could they be, eek, divorced?
