‘Will + Grace’ Stars Reunite for Election-Related 2016 Scene
Is it any surprise that Karen Walker is voting for Donald Trump? This cast hasn't missed a beat. Watch Will & Grace's new, 2016 election-related scene above — and remember to #VoteHoney.
ORIGINAL POST: Ready your celebratory glass of champagne (or, if you're Karen Walker, your celebratory bottle): Will & Grace is making a comeback. Sean Hayes has shared a photo of the full cast reunited and a video in which a coded message spells out "Will and Grace is Back."
The revered NBC sitcom, which aired from 1998 until 2006, is credited with bringing gay characters to pop culture's forefront — even Vice President Joe Biden said it's entertainment's most important cultural contribution to the LGBT community. On September 25, 10 years after its final episode, show stars Megan Mullally, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Eric McCormack provided reason to believe a reunion is just around the corner.
Hype began to manifest yesterday (September 25) after Messing posted an Instagram photo of the four stars hugging.
"Only smiling because of where Eric's hand is!" she wrote. Then, a flurry of photos from each of the cast members came — Mullally's, in particular, looked like it was taken straight from Will and Grace's famous Upper West Side apartment.
Finally, Mullally and Hayes tweeted photos of something called Hot Food and ostensible characters named Ethel and Fred. A new production? An observance of lunch? We'll have to wait and see...
In February, the group (save for Messing) reunited as part of an all-star tribute to Jim Burrows, who directed every single Will & Grace episode. Hayes said the show's impact on gay visibility on TV was never the aim of the show, but he and the cast were thrilled they made a difference.
"It was never our intention beyond making anyone laugh, so anything beyond that was incredible," he said.
