In one of the stills, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) is seen holding hands with Luke (Scott Patterson) during a stroll. Are they still together?

Lauren recently tweeted about Melissa’s return as Sookie, saying, "Yay, Sookie! This makes me so so happy. Let's all go see @TheBossFilm this weekend to celebrate.”

Sutton Foster, who has also signed on to star in the revival, gushed with Entertainment Weekly about Melissa, "She was such a major part of the original and it was sad to think of her not being a part of it, so I’m thrilled. My husband actually was like, ‘Big announcement, Melissa McCarthy is going to be on [the show]!’ I’m really close with Amy and Dan [Palladino] and everybody in the ‘Gilmore' world and I know they really wanted to make it work.”
