In separate appearances, Eric McCormack
and Megan Mullally talked about the possibility of a new season for
Will & Grace.
News of a possible reboot began
circulating just weeks after the cast reunited for an election year
mini-episode which has been viewed more than 6 million times on
McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullaly, Sean Hayes reunite for Will
Appearing Thursday on NBC's The
Today Show, Mullally, who played alcoholic socialite Karen Walker
throughout the sitcom's 8 seasons, would only say there's “nothing
official,” then added: “Come on NBC! Get it together!”
“We had such a good time doing it,”
Mullally said of the mini-episode. “And ever since then there's
been a lot of rumors about coming back. We all really love each
other … So, if we could do it, it would be fun.”
During an appearance on Late Night,
McCormack said “there's a chance” of a reunion.
“It's in talks. When it came up, you
know, we thought, 'Well that would be so much fun to do it.' But, I
mean, once Hillary is elected what are we going to talk about?” he
rhetorically asked with a shrug.
Will & Grace, which
premiered in 1998, was the first prime time network sitcom to feature
a gay lead in McCormack's uptight lawyer, Will.
