Sutton Foster Set for Gilmore Girls Revival — as Her Bunheads Character?!

Sutton Foster on Gilmore Girls

Is the Gilmore Girls revival going to give us the final four words to Bunheads, too?!

TVLine has learned exclusively that Sutton Foster — who headlined Gilmore creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s late, great, painfully short-lived ABC Family dramedy Bunheads — will have a role in the upcoming Netflix continuation.

What’s not known is if Foster will be playing her Bunheads character Michelle or a new role. Here’s hoping against hope (and any intellectual property hurdles) that it’s the former — though we guess that would probably mean Foster would have to do a double-take upon seeing Emily, given that Kelly Bishop played both the Gilmore grandma and Bunheads‘ Fanny.

Foster, who is currently starring in TV Land’s Younger, is the first confirmed member of the revival’s cast who was not a part of the original series.

How do we feel about Foster’s addition to the cast, Gilmore fans? And do you hope she’ll bring Bunheads‘ Michelle to Stars Hollow? Sound off in the comments!
