Subscribe To Why Will And Grace Is Probably Not Returning, Despite Recent Reunion Updates

If you've been paying attention to the world of TV and movies you'll notice one thing: reboots are where its at. Cashing in on nostalgia, studios have been producing new seasons and long-awaited sequels for previously completed projects. We've seen this happen with movies like Independence Day: Resurgence and TV series like Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and Fuller House. Most recently, the cast of Will & Grace reunited for a pro-Hillary Clinton short, leading many to wonder if new episodes are on their way. Indeed, the images of Megan Mullally, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Eric McCormack in character at Will's apartment was enough to send the droves of fans into a frenzy.

will and grace reunion

Eric McCormack and Debra Messing, who played the title characters in Will & Grace, recently spoke to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter in the wake of the pro-Hillary video "Vote Honey". When asked if a new season was in the works, McCormack said the following:

There is no official talk. A lot of that started the past 36 hours on the internet, which can create its own crazy expectations. We had a great time. It's a never say never type of situation. But at this point, there is no talk. Maybe [he'd be interested in doing it]. 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. We knew when Max said, 'This is what it is: it's 10 minutes for this purpose; I have the sets.' We knew that was not going to mess with it; in fact, it would very much add and be exactly the way we'd want to reunite at this point. As for the future, everyone --- from Max and David on down --- is so protective of the show and how we ended it. We're very proud of the series finale and the story that told of the break that friendships sometimes take.

Well, this is a bummer. It looks like no new Will & Grace episodes are happening anytime soon, although that does make a bit of sense for those who know the series well.

Will and Grace's series finale was a bit of a controversial one. After watching the codependent couple go through their various misadventures for eight seasons, the series ended on a sour note. We saw Will and Grace each have children with their respective spouses. While this all seems like exciting and happy news, the finale sees the best friends have a major fallout that lasted for nearly two decades. They're eventually reunited when their children end up at the same college, but overall it felt super sour and terrible that the duo's friendship had temporarily ended.

So if Will & Grace were to pick up new episodes, it would have to be after the title characters are finally reunited. This all seems like a logistical nightmare, since their spouses, played by Harry Connick, Jr. and Bobby Cannavale, would need to presumably be series regulars as well. And with each actor's busy schedule, it seems unlikely that another season of the popular sitcom could make sense.

Do you think Will & Grace should come back for more episodes, or was "Vote Honey" just enough? Sound off in the comments below.
