Will & Grace fans may soon see Eric McCormack and his friends back on the small screen. Yes, a potential limited revival is in the talking stages, according to the actor.
Will & Grace aired for eight seasons on NBC before it ended, and the cast gathered together for a special 10-minute video earlier this year. McCormack said the following about the cast’s decision to reunite for the short video to AV Club:
“Oh, it was kind of strange, in light of Travelers, because it was like traveling back in time. First of all, it was all top secret. It was something we put together in such a top-secret way that even our agents and employers didn’t know we were doing it. But we had the set reconstructed to a prop. It was perfect. And all the heads of the departments came back and some of the writers. And Jim Burrows was there. So it felt like a Tuesday night in 2002. We had an audience of about a hundred, most of whom did not know what they were about to see. They were friends of friends and were kind of given the impression that Max was trying something and they wanted to try this out and see if this worked. And then they pulled the floaters out of the way, and there was the set and the four of us standing on it, and it was pretty awesome.”
That short video received a lot of attention, and it has opened the door for a bigger return. McCormack revealed the following about the talks currently in progress:
“Yeah, we’re talking about it. NBC loved it. They didn’t even know what we were doing with that 10-minute YouTube video. But when they found out about it, they were very gracious and said, “We love it. Go ahead and do it.” And when they saw the response to it, they did come and say, “What about doing a limited return?” So we’re in discussions for that at the moment, and the four of us would love for that to happen. That would be great.”
