Will & Grace: Megan Mullally confident in reboot
The Will & Grace election reunion special from September sparked the inevitable question: Is a reunion on the way? Megan Mullally has a reason for optimism.
One of the NBC sitcom’s primary four stars, Mullally was bullish on the prospects of a reboot series. She even qualified the odds when asked by PrideSource.
“All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen,” she said. “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 materialize.”
Every cast member expressed sheer joy to be back in the shoes of their respective characters. Debra Messing has a game plan in mind. “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 told PEOPLE. “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.”
Mullally thinks the timing of a revival could not be better. But it would need to hit some beats. “I think the first rule of any show — and again, we’re speaking hypothetically — is that it be funny and entertaining. I mean, it’s comedy,” she said. “Then, from there — the show was always very topical. … It’s a very topical, current show. We had a gay marriage on Will & Grace in 2000, 2001. And I was like, gay marriage?! I mean, it was just really early.”
