NBC Shoots Down 'Will & Grace' Reunion Rumors


Earlier today, it was reported that the cast and crew of 'Will & Grace' were set to reunite for a reunion special. Fan buzz spread across the Internet, but alas, this appears to be yet another case of bogus online reporting that was posted solely to get clicks. Not that the "legitimate" entertainment media helped, with several large sites propagating the story while obviously not bothering to even send an email to NBC for clarification.

Thankfully, Buzzfeed finally did reach out to the Peacock, who has proceeded to put the kibosh on any rumored reunion plans for the groundbreaking sitcom. According to a rep for the network, there is "no truth" to the original report of a planned 'Will & Grace' reunion, with the caveat that they obviously haven't ruled out it eventually happening at some undetermined point. "I can’t speak for ‘ever’ but there are no talks right now,' said the rep. That sounds pretty definitive as far as the near future goes.

Personally, I wouldn't be too surprised if we never get an onscreen reunion between Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack, for the same reasons we're not likely to get a 'Friends' reunion anytime soon. Much like most of the cast of 'Friends,' 'W&G' stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes are all still actively working on the small screen.

None of the four are lacking in either fame or money, and have no real need to stage a 'Will & Grace' reunion to reignite their careers. Will McCormack, Messing, Mullally, and Hayes appear on a talk show or DVD documentary together in the next few years? Probably. Will they reprise their old roles for a full-on reunion episode? Probably not.
