"All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen"
Megan Mullally has strongly suggested that Will & Grace could return to the small screen very soon, hinting that a 10-episode reboot of the show has been agreed upon.
The New York City-set sitcom originally ran for eight seasons from 1998-2006, and returned in September for a 10-minute special that urged Americans to vote in November’s US Presidential Election. A report in October suggested that the show could find a new home on Netflix, though no evidence of any agreement being made with the streaming service has surfaced since.
However, Mullally – who played Karen on the show – has spoken hopefully about the future of Will & Grace, strongly hinting that it may return to screens very soon.
Speaking to Pridesource, Mullally said: “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.
“So speaking theoretically, in a completely made-up world where Will & Grace is coming back to NBC for 10 episodes — just in that made-up world — it couldn’t be a better time,” she continued. “I think more so now than even when we started! And who would have ever — I mean, it’s heinous that it’s because Donald Trump is the president-elect.”
