Megan Mullally teased that there might be even *more* "Will & Grace" on the cards, and YES PLEASE
There had been rumors of a revival since the four main cast members of the show — Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, Eric McCormack, and Sean Hayes — all got together for a special one-off skit around the November election. While Debra Messing attempted to put a hold on the speculation, it was announced by NBC that there would be 10 brand new episodes of the beloved sitcom coming in the very near future!
Since then, we’ve been gifted with behind-the-scenes pictures from the cast, and we can’t get enough of it.
And now Megan Mullally, who played the immutable and hilarious Karen Walker on the show, has teased that there might be even more Will & Grace on the cards.
In an interview with The Guardian where she was promoting her band, Nancy and Beth, Mullally said that there could be more than just those 10 episodes of Will & Grace.
The star also spoke about what she thought her character, Karen Walker, had been up to in the resulting 11 years since the show ended.
“Besides getting up to no good?” she joked. “Alcohol might not be making much of a dent any more. She may have graduated to crystal meth. Karen was always such a lawless rebel: carrying a gun in her purse, flirting with 14-year-old boys. She’s the worst. You know that horrible guy Milo Yiannopoulos? She has about as many redeeming qualities as he has.”
Touchingly, Megan Mullally also noted how, after 11 years, it didn’t at all feel weird reuniting with her Will & Grace co-stars, and she also spoke about how the show would represent the current political climate.
“The main goal is to be funny, first and foremost, but the writers are so smart, they’ll find ways to comment on what’s going on in the world,” she said. “The show was never overtly politicised, it was just topical. We didn’t hammer home that Will and Jack were gay – they just were gay, among other things. Viewers enjoyed it as entertainment, but maybe some teeny part of it got a little toehold in the backs of their minds and some change grew out of that.”
Tbh, we can’t wait until we’re reunited with Karen, Jack, Will, and Grace when Will & Grace returns to our screens during the 2017-2018 TV season. And, hopefully, it’ll be the beginning of a long and healthy revival. Bring it on!
