As Jack would say, there is indeed Big news for fans of TV’s Will & Grace.
The four main stars — Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes — reunited at a comedy show featuring Mullally and her husband, Nick Offerman this past weekend.
And they took lots of fun photographs, and shared them on Instagram. It’s the first time fans have seen their favorite actors all together since the show ended its run a decade ago. But the real reason they reunited became clear late Monday when a new Will & Grace scene was released on YouTube about the election.
And there was much celebrating! Debra Messing joked that she and Mullally were in fact now married.
Messing captioned this one of her embracing McCormack with a heartwarming twist on that Karen line, “smell you later.”
And of course, no W&G reunion would be complete without funny man Sean Hayes.
But the best was yet to come. The next series of social media posts showed the cast back on the Will & Grace set, apartment 9C.

“I feel something BIG is going to happen tomorrow,” Messing captioned this one:
McCormack tweeted a self-deprecating joke:

The closest fans got to anything like this was in February when McCormack, Mullally and Hayes attended an NBC gala. Messing was stuck in New York City by snow and her commitment to her now canceled NBC series, The Mysteries of Laura.
Messing shared a promo video that hinted at what was to come. Watch below, and be prepared; it just might make you spit out your vodka:
Finally, here’s the election-themed video they put together, released late Monday. Enjoy!
