Given Debra Messing’s staunch support for Hillary Clinton throughout her US presidential campaign, we probably should have guessed that the ‘Will And Grace’ “reunion” would have had political undertones.
Still, the original four leading cast members managed to turn what could have been something preachy and heavy-handed into a genuinely funny 10-minute sketch, there to remind us what made ‘Will And Grace’ so great all those years ago.
The new video debuted online on Monday (26 September) night, and in addition to to its political message, there were still plenty of laugh-out-loud moments (although, it has to be said, a lot of them were at the expense of Donald Trump).
In keeping with the original sitcom, which ran for eight series until its conclusion in 2006, the sketch is also littered with pop culture references, whether it’s Will and Jack geeking out over ‘Dancing With The Stars’, Grace lamenting the ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ movie or Jack slating Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for ending their marriage the same week his latest doomed relationship ended.
The video coincided with the first US presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, which aired on Monday.

The original cast of ‘Will And Grace’ met up for a reunion of sorts earlier this year - at the same TV special as the main stars of ‘Friends’ - though Debra Messing was unable to attend, due to a scheduling conflict.
