‘Will & Grace’ Reunite in Election-Themed Scene

by Cate Lecuyer  |  09.27.2016

A decade after the season finale, Will & Grace stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally reunited for a nearly 10-minute scene that addresses the 2016 presidential election.

The pro-Hillary Clinton clip, released on Monday just hours before the first presidential debate, shows Will and Grace trying to convince Karen and Jack not to vote for Donald Trump. It uses the trending hashtag #votehoney to play up the importance of heading to the polls. Off-camera, Messing has been a strong supporter of Clinton.

The video also touches on recent pop culture topics such as Fifty Shades of Grey, Hamilton, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s breakup, and Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte being attacked on Dancing with the Stars.

The cast began cryptically tweeting about the project over the weekend, posting photos of themselves appearing to be in character on the set of the former NBC sitcom, and on Monday posted a teaser video which spelled out “Will & Grace is back.”
