10 years ago this May, the beloved sitcom Will & Grace went off the air after eight successful seasons, but, like many hit shows of the past, it has found a way to come back. Over the weekend, series stars Debra Messing (Grace Adler), Eric McCormack (Will Truman), Megan Mullally (Karen Walker) and Sean Hayes (Jack McFarland) teased that a reunion of some sort would happen sometime today. Since the first Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is happening tonight, many assumed this cast reunion would have something to do with the upcoming election, and as it turns out, the speculation was accurate. This afternoon, just hours before the debate, a nine-minute mini-episode set in present day has all four characters discussing issues surrounding this Presidential election.
This YouTube video features both Will and Grace expressing their distaste for Donald Trump, and how they can't imagine why anyone would vote for him, which segues perfectly into Karen Walker entering the room, proclaiming her support for Donald Trump. In the original series, Karen was Grace's assistant, although she never really needed to work, since she married into money several times over. Karen reveals in this video that she's close friends with Donald Trump, saying she helped him "pick out" his current wife Melania.
This video also addresses another hot-button story unrelated to the election, the divorce of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, which Jack is upset about since it coincided with his own break-up, via text message. This timely video also addresses the fact that undecided voters in "swing states" like Pennsylvania could be vital to the election, as Jack reveals that he is currently undecided, and actually registered in Pennsylvania.
What follows is Karen trying to persuade Jack to vote for Trump, while Will and Grace try to sway Jack to vote for Hillary Clinton. We won't spoil the end, but the reason why Jack ends up picking a candidate is quite hilarious, and there is a special surprise cameo at the very end. The video was sent out by all of the stars on social media, along with an image that features all four cast members with the hashtag #VoteHoney
For fans hoping for a series revival of Will & Grace, we don't know if that will happen, but these sorts of reunions and revivals have proven to be quite popular. Netflix has brought back the hit 80s sitcom Full House with the continuation Fuller House, with the streaming service bringing back the original stars of Gilmore Girls for a new follow-up that consists of four feature-length episodes. Take a look at this Will & Grace reunion below, before watching the Presidential Debate tonight at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.
