After much speculation raised by the stars of the hit must-see-TV NBC show Will & Grace, we finally got to see what was going on.
Starting Saturday, actors Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally filled their social media accounts with pictures and mysterious messages, teasing fans everywhere about a possible Will & Grace return.

Having been off the air for 10 years with fans who definitely miss it, and with all the reboots and reunions that have graced our TVs -- and computers -- lately (we see you MacGyver, Fuller House and a long etc.), a return of the show wouldn’t have been totally crazy. Except for the fact that McCormack is busy with Showcase’s Travelers and Messing is filming The Mysteries of Laura ... But hey, a girl can dream, right? Just look at the next tweets and tell me you don't need these foursome back together.

Alas, a few hours before the Presidential Debate, the cast unveiled the 10-minute clip in which we see the sitcom’s beloved characters (and set!) talking about the upcoming election. To no one’s surprise, Karen is voting for Trump, Donnie, as she affectionately calls him. After all, they are friends, she even helped him "pick out" Melania.
Will and Grace talk about how they won’t be able to convince Trumpettes like Karen to vote for Hillary and say the undecided, uneducated, angry, white male is the type of voter they would have to persuade. In comes poor old clueless Jack, who has no idea who he'll be voting for and is totally ignorant regarding politics (sounds like a Trump supporter to me). Both Messing and McCormack’s characters talk to Jack about why he should stick with Clinton; Grace tells him she can't think of "any greater message to send to millions of little girls, and little boys who are going to be little girls, and little girls who are going to be little boys," that one day they could be President of the USA themselves. At the end, he seems almost convinced but isn’t quite there yet. Grace looks on frustrated, but Will seals the deal: “Katy Perry likes Hillary.” Jack’s response? "Sorry, Kar, I'm with her."

So what did you guys think? I, for one, loved it! Not only was the message spot on but the dialogue was classic Will & Grace; it was as though no time had passed! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
