The sitcom is rumoured to be in the running for a 10-episode reboot sometime next year
Megan Mullally has said that a reboot of Will & Grace could help “make America great again.”
Mullally starred as Karen in the hit sitcom, which originally ran for eight seasons from 1998-2006. It made a brief return in September, with a 10-minute special starring Mullally, Sean Hayes (who played Jack), Eric McCormack and Debra Messing (who played the titular duo) that encouraged Americans to vote in November’s US election.
The actress strongly suggested earlier this month that Will & Grace could return for a 10-episode reboot next year, with Netflix a possible home for the revival. Mullally has again spoken about the show’s reunion, saying that, given the current climate, the return of Will & Grace and in particular her character Karen in the near future could, in her words, “make America great again.”
“It certainly couldn’t be a better time. We would have carte blanche because of everything that’s happening in the world right now,” the 58-year-old actress told ET. “I think it’s a really nice time for us to get back together and do some comedy.”
While Mullally is hopeful of a return, no official word of a reunion has been announced. Back in December, the actress admitted: “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. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialise.”
