Megan Mullally Says ‘Will & Grace’ Will Very Likely Return, Honey
Mullally, who played the groundbreaking NBC sitcom's filthy rich Karen between 1998 and 2006, told Pride Life in an interview published Thursday (December 8) that there might just be a bit more fuel (or, in Karen's case, vodka) left in the show's tank. In other words, we may be in for a W&G reboot.
"All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen," she said. "It’s not happening right this second. I mean, we’re not rehearsing or anything like that. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize."
"So speaking theoretically, in a completely made-up world where Will & Grace is coming back to NBC for 10 episodes — just in that made-up world — it couldn’t be a better time," she added. "I think more so now than even when we started! And who would have ever — I mean, it’s heinous that it’s because Donald Trump is the president-elect."
Mullally's interview comes just weeks after she and former co-stars Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Eric McCormack resurrected their Will & Grace characters to film a 10-minute election-pegged skit. Since the clip's September unveiling, both Messing and McCormack have said they'd be on board with a more substantial extension of the show.
"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,” Messing told People. “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."
