Ready for round two? Debra Messing teased a Will & Grace reunion via Twitter on Thursday, October 27, amid reports that NBC is in talks about a revival of the beloved sitcom.
The 48-year-old actress and her costars, Sean Hayes, Megan Mullally and Eric McCormack, reunited on Thursday to campaign for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The famous foursome made an appearance at a Los Angeles rally for the Oval Office hopeful, 69, and documented their day via social media.
“The gang’s back together for #HillaryClinton!” Messing captioned a group selfie. “#LA #WillAndGrace.”
The Mysteries of Laura star shared a subsequent snapshot of the Will & Grace crew standing on a stone ledge.“Our Album cover,” Messing wrote alongside the pic. “@seanhayes @meganomullally #ericmccormack #LAReunion #Hillary #weareALLin @houseofhillary”
The cast — who starred on the hit sitcom for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006 — recently reunited to film an extended scene urging fans to vote in this year’s upcoming presidential election. The nine-minute clip went viral hours after its September 26 release, just ahead of the first 2016 presidential debate.
Messing (who played Grace Adler) ignited more revival speculation after she retweeted a fan who hinted at the possibility of a reboot. “I want to thank this wild election for reuniting the cast of Will & Grace,” the tweet read, accompanied by a #revival hashtag.
According to TV Line and The Hollywood Reporter, NBC is in talks to bring Will & Grace back to the small screen for at least one season. The network has declined to comment on the report. However, Messing and McCormack (Will Truman) told THR in a September 27 interview that they will never rule out jumping back into character.
“We had a great time. It's a 'never say never' type of situation,” McCormack, 53, told the publication. “ … I think you'll find that we'll all give that answer. The whole eight years was lightning in a bottle. You want to be careful that you don't mess too much with that bottle.”
Messing echoed her costar: “I never say never anymore. Everything has changed so much in the TV industry; there have been reboots.”
