Is Will & Grace coming back? Hot off the release of the series’ special election mini-episode, the cast spoke with People about the reunion and a possible revival for the NBC sitcom.
Yesterday, a nearly 10-minute mini-episode of Will & Grace was released, featuring Will (Eric McCormack), Grace (Debra Messing), Karen (Megan Mullally), and Jack (Sean Hayes) discussing the upcoming presidential election. The special reunion comes 10 years after the series ended in 2006.
Speaking to People, Mullally revealed the idea for the reunion mini-episode came from co-creator Max Mutchnick:
The idea came from [co-creator] Max Mutchnick, who had this idea of Karen having a wall installed in her house to make [her maid] Rosario practice climbing so that when Trump builds the wall, she can get back over it to get to work again. It’s so funny because, during the last year or so when I’ve been asked in interviews, “What do you think Karen would be doing now?” I’ve always said I think she’d be married to Donald Trump.”
But what about a full revival? Messing said she hopes for one on Netflix or Amazon:
If there was a Will & Grace 2.0, my wish is that we did 10 [episodes] on, like, Netflix or Amazon or somewhere where it could be the naughty version of Will & Grace. Because you know we were on network television and there were certain lines of common storytelling that we were limited to so it would be fun to kind of go into that world where nothing is held back.”
McCormack added that the whole cast would be interested in a revival of Will & Grace:
This was the best we could muster right now, just putting all of our talents to great use before this election. I know a lot of people thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s all coming back, it’s starting again,’ but this is what we got today.”
What do you think? Are you fan of Will & Grace? Would you like a revival?
