Megan Mullally Is Making Us Very Optimistic About a Will & Grace Revival
"A lot of people really want this show to come back," the actress said on #WWHL.
A mini-Will & Grace reunion in the form of a nearly 10-minute-long election-themed video was just what we needed when it dropped back in September. And it's possible that there could be more new Will & Grace on the way.
Megan Mullally, who won two Emmys for her work as Karen Walker on the NBC comedy, teased that "there is a very good chance" there could be new episodes of Will & Grace on the way during an interview with Pride Source earlier this month. So of course when Megan visited the Bravo Clubhouse during Thursday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen had a lot of questions about what sounds like the possibility of a future Will & Grace revival (clip above).
First and foremost, Andy asked if anything had officially been discussed in regards to getting the whole Will & Grace back together again for more new episodes. "There's some interest, people have been talking, there's some rumors," Megan said. "From what I can tell, a lot of people really want this show to come back, so we'll see what happens."
Though Megan joked that Andy's statement about the cast needing "three dump trucks full of money" in order to sign on for a new series was accurate, it sounds like reuniting for that short segment this fall was just as fun as filming Will & Grace during its original run from 1998 to 2006. "It was crazy. It was kind of like we had just been away for the weekend," Megan gushed on WWHL. "The best part was really that it was all the same people, not just the cast, but Jim Burrows the director, the lighting designer, the costume designer, the set designer, the writer, I mean, everybody the same."
As for how much new Will & Grace we could see in the future, Megan said she had "no idea," but she joked that is could be "a 12-part miniseries with each installment being four hours long."
This was also a big year for Will & Grace fans as they saw Megan reunite with her former co-stars Eric McCormack and Sean Hayes during a tribute to legendary TV director James Burrows in February, which Andy also moderated.
