Will & Grace: Debra Messing wants 'naughty' revival

On the heels of Will & Grace‘s special election-themed reunion on Monday, fans are clamoring for a proper revival of the NBC hit.

And while nothing official is in the works yet, several of the Must See TV sitcom’s stars chatted with PEOPLE about the potential for a revival, reboot or larger-scale reunion in the future.

“The response has been very overwhelming and really, really heartwarming,” shared Debra Messing, who brought designer Grace Adler to life.

“If there was a Will & Grace 2.0, my wish is that we did 10 [episodes] on, like, Netflix or Amazon or somewhere where it could be the naughty version of Will & Grace,” she continued. “Because you know we were on network television and there were certain lines of common storytelling that we were limited to so it would be fun to kind of go into that world where nothing is held back.”

Megan Mullally (a.k.a. Karen Walker) agreed, saying, “I feel great about [the possibility of extending the series]. Anything’s possible!”

For his part, Eric McCormack, who played Will Truman from 1998–2006, acknowledged, “I knew for sure that once we started teasing it out in the last 24 hours that there would be a lot of expectation.”

“This was the best we could muster right now, just putting all of our talents to great use before this election,” he said of the cast’s busy schedules. “I know a lot of people thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s all coming back, it’s starting again,’ but this is what we got today.”

Which isn’t to say McCormack isn’t down for a return to his breakout character: “Never say never. We’d all be interested to get that call, I think.”
