LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Liza Weil has confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Paris Geller in Netflix's upcoming revival of Gilmore Girls.

Speaking with E! News Sunday, Weil discussed her involvement with the returning series.

"I start on Tuesday, which I really feel like bodes well that I get to start on a Tuesday being that we used to be on a Tuesday," she said at the aTVfest in Atlanta. "Tuesday is my first day, and I'm nervous!"

The already in development four-part revival that takes place over the course of a year, will feature Paris in two episodes with each episode representing a different season.

"It's very emotional to read them," Weil said of going through the scripts. "It's like a really magical perfect time machine. I'm very happy to be a part of it."

"It was like I didn't realize how much I missed her," Weil said about reprising her role as Paris. "It was nice to sort of see an old friend," Weil continued.

Paris was last seen on Gilmore Girls going to medical school after graduating from Yale. Original stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Sean Gunn, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, Matt Czuchry and Yanic Truesdale are also set to return.

On Wednesday, Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie in the original series said she wasn't invited back for the revival.
