And Now a Will & Grace Revival Update From Megan Mullally
“Well, there’s some interest and people have been talking and there’s some rumors…From what I can tell, a lot of people really want the show to come back, so we’ll see what happens,” Mullally told host Andy Cohen.
Mullally posted a group photo of her Will & Grace stars on Instagram recently. “Who are these nerds with their little desserts? and why are they always together,” she asked and tagged her costars on Instagram.

“Well, you know what? The four of us were so surprised that Max [Mutchnick, Will & Grace co-creator] called us up and said, ‘OK, don’t ask how, but I’ve got the set and everything, so let’s do something and help the cause.’ It was so much fun to do and the response was so huge. And it’s kind of amazing too that between [director] Jimmy Burrows and our set decorators, they made it look like an episode of the show,” he said of the election-themed reunion. “So, when NBC came back and said, ‘Is there more to this?’ the talk right now is that we are sort of in talks [for] maybe something limited, a little 10 episodes…but it’s going to be awhile before we can figure it out. I’m the only one with a [regular] series, but the other three could have a series at any moment. So, it is a very hard thing to schedule but we’re certainly all into it.”
TV revivals are all the rage. Netflix recently brought back Gilmore Girls with great success. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiered Friday, Nov. 25 with positive reviews from fans and critics. Fox brought back The X-Files for a six-episode season in early 2016. Both revivals had the original series stars and producers attached, as does Will & Grace.
