Megan Mullally Says There's A 'Good Chance' Of 'Will & Grace' Returning

And it couldn't be more relevant in Trump's America, she said.

“I mean, it couldn’t possibly be better timing,” Mullally, with her co-stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing and Sean Hayes, said. 

Longtime “Will & Grace” fans got a special treat this September when the cast of the Emmy-winning sitcom, which wrapped in 2006, reunited for an election-themed mini-episode

As it turns out, that might not be the last we’ll see of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen. In a new interview with PrideSource, series star Megan Mullally hinted that there was “a very good chance” that the show would be returning again in the future ― even though viewers shouldn’t be setting their DVRs just yet. 

“All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen. It’s not happening right this second. I mean, we’re not rehearsing or anything like that,” she said. “But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize.”

That “something,” she added, could mean “coming back to NBC for 10 episodes,” though she stressed that she was only “speaking theoretically [and] in a completely made-up world.” When PrideSource’s Chris Azzopardi pressed for details, Mullally remained mostly tight-lipped, but noted that the show’s all-inclusive message would be particularly relevant following Donald Trump’s election victory. “I mean, it couldn’t possibly be better timing,” she said. “I think more so now than even when we started!”

The 58-year-old, who will next be seen opposite James Franco and Bryan Cranston in the big-screen comedy, “Why Him?,” said that “words can’t really describe” how proud she is to have been a part of a series that broke fresh ground in terms of portraying LGBTQ people on television.

“To have been a part of a show that actually not only helped people come out to their parents, or to come out period, or to not to feel like they were alone [was great],” she said. “I’m not saying ‘Will & Grace’ is responsible for gay marriage; I’m saying that maybe there was an element that helped in some way.”
