The political skit was specifically aimed at promoting Hillary Clinton for US President, but — as Debra Messing (who played Grace) explained to Time Out — reuniting the cast made them “realise that there is a kind of magical synergy between the four of us”.
“The campaign season between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton absolutely was the catalyst for us coming back,” she said.
It seems likely there would be a lot of pressure on a show which was once a hit sitcom but has been off the air for more than a decade, but Messing doesn’t feel that way.
As for the chemistry between her, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mulally — the actress insists nothing has changed.
FANS went wild over a short Will & Grace reunion video last year which saw the gang hanging out in Will’s apartment, eleven years after the series finale aired.
