The cast of NBC’s Will & Grace reunited to film a skit hoping to encourage registered voters to make their voices heard shortly before the 2016 presidential election. Whether or not the skit worked is up for debate. But as more than 7.7 million watched the video on YouTube, what was seemingly unanimous is that America was ready for more of Will Truman and Grace Adler’s comical antics.
But if you’re wondering why the iconic sitcom is making a comeback now, the reason might surprise you. During an interview with SiriusXM host Andy Cohen, the cast and creators of the NBC hit credit the divisive campaign between President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the show’s return. But they’re also assuring people on both sides of the political spectrum that Will & Grace is for everyone.
Watch below as the cast members talk about the show’s much-anticipated comeback.
