Melissa McCarthy's vacation turns into surprise 'Gilmore Girls' reunion — see the pic

Melissa McCarthy planned to vacation in Greece, but thanks to an unexpected twist, she ended up in Stars Hollow!

Sort of.

The actress, who originally gained fame as Sookie St. James on "Gilmore Girls" back in the day, was enjoying sun and fun along the Mediterranean Sea this week when she ran into a familiar face at the shore — her former co-star, Yanic Truesdale.

Truesdale played Sookie's frenemy Michael on the show, but the off-screen pals were all smiles during their surprise reunion.

"I love when this happens!" the actor wrote alongside a photo he shared. "By coincidence, we both booked ... a vacation at the same time in Greece!"

He added the hashtags "#magicaltiming" and "#bestvacations."

But even before he ran into McCarthy, Truesdale's best vacation seemed to have a "Gilmore" theme going.

Two days earlier, he shared a solo pic of himself lounging by the beach with a good book — "Talking as Fast as I Can: From 'Gilmore Girls' to 'Gilmore Girls' (and Everything in Between)," by none other than Lorelai herself, Lauren Graham.

"Catching up on my reading in Greece," he captioned the shot. "Proud of my friend Lauren for her funny and entertaining new book!"

We apologize, this video has expired.

It's all a treat for fans who don't know when — or even if! — they'll get a chance to see the gang together again after last year's revival run on Netflix.
