Will And Grace Stars Stage Sweet Reunion
Former Will And Grace co-stars including Eric McCormack and Debra Messing gave fans hope of an onscreen reunion after posting snaps of a recent get-together on social media.
A decade after the beloved sitcom ended its eight-season run, the show’s titular stars, along with sidekicks played by Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, reunited this past Wednesday and shared their lovefest with fans on Twitter on Saturday.

Debra posted a sweet picture of her happily embracing her onscreen best friend Eric, adding the caption, “You smell the same!”
She also shared a group shot of the foursome in a loving embrace, and jokingly wrote, “Only smiling because of where Eric’s hand is!”
Megan retweeted the post and added, “i’m smiling, too, and not just because of a hand,” ending the sentence with an emoji of a banana.

Megan, who won two Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Karen Walker on the series, also shared a snap of Debra giving her a kiss on the cheek, adding, “a little girl-on-girl fun!”, while Sean posted a selfie of himself with his onscreen partner-in-crime Megan, writing the caption, “OMG! They’re here!”
It is unclear if the foursome’s reunion was to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the show, or just a friendly get together.
The meet-up comes months after Eric, Sean and Megan came together to help pay tribute to Will & Grace director James Burrows for a U.S. TV special.
Debra was also slated to join the cast in Los Angeles, but was stuck in New York City and unable to get a flight out due to a massive snow storm on the East Coast.
TV veteran Burrows was feted by cast members of shows he has directed over the course of his four decade-plus career, including Friends, Cheers, Taxi, Frasier, The Big Bang Theory, and Two and a Half Men.
