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.
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.
