LOS ANGELES, March 22 (UPI) -- Self-proclaimed Gilmore Girls fan Sutton Foster has described walking onto the set of Netflix's upcoming revival as "crazy."

"The first time I walked into Stars Hollow was crazy. Beyond," the Younger actress explained to Entertainment Weekly Monday about her time on the show and how she felt overwhelmed seeing all the familiar places from the show.

"I was walking by and being like 'There's Lorelai's house! There's the Jeep! Oh my gosh, there's Kim's Antiques! Oh my gosh, there's Luke's Diner!' You know, I'm a big super nerd. It's really cool walking through," she continued.

The already in-development four-part revival that takes place over the course of a year, will feature Foster in two episodes with each episode representing a different season. "The first time I was there, it was decorated for springtime and the second time I was there it was decorated for fall, so all the pumpkins were out and all the autumn leaves and it's just a magical little place," she said of the set during her time filming.

Netflix has already confirmed that original stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel are set to return along with Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena and Yanic Truesdale.

Foster also admitted to filming a scene with Graham that left her emotional afterwards. "Lauren Graham is awesome. She's one of my favorite actresses... We got to film a scene together on the show. It was just surreal, I was really nervous. When it was over, when we got it, I just burst into tears," she explained.

Melissa McCarthy confirmed that she won't be returning as Sookie St. James in the revival but mentioned that she is "excited" for the show and "will watch it" from home.
