The cast of Will & Grace have shared their thoughts on bringing back the classic sitcom following the success of this week’s one-off revival sketch.
Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes reunited recently for a surprise sketch designed to encourage Americans to vote in the upcoming Presidential election.
Since it was shared on YouTube on Monday night (September 26), the 10-minute mini-episode has been viewed more than 3.5 million times.
“The response has been very overwhelming and really, really heartwarming,” Grace actress Messing told People. “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.”
She added: “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.”
Mullally, who played Karen, also responded positively to a question about a full-on revival series, saying, “Anything’s possible!”
However, Will actor McCormack spoke rather more cautiously, saying of the political-themed reunion sketch: “This was the best we could muster right now, just putting all of our talents to great use before this election. I know a lot of people thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s all coming back, it’s starting again, but this is what we got today.”
“Never say never,” he added. “We’d all be interested to get that call, I think.”
