Ten years has passed since the trailblazing sitcom Will and Grace aired its last episode but fans are still hopeful for a Will and Grace new season 2016. It seems like an answered prayer just in time for the Presidential debate.
The hit TV series’ four lead roles Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally created quite a stir this weekend on Twitter with posts hinting the return of the show.

The speculations of Will and Grace new season 2016 were confirmed when Messing posted a teaser video for the return of the series with the words, “A band of heroes Will assemble to protect the world from aliens & destruction. Only an act of Grace can save them in their battle for what Is right. Only they can bring America Back from the brink.”

A ten-minute clip was released Monday, September 26 and the topic revolved mainly around the Presidential candidates for this year’s election. The clip was released just in time for the US Presidential Debate happening the same day.
In the video, Karen (Mullaly) was raving about Donald Trump, while her friends Will (McCormack) and Grace (Messing) were lecturing her about the platforms Trump has that are in conflict with certain aspects of Karen’s life.
On the other hand, Jack (Hayes), who was the “unemployed, uneducated angry white man” was inclined to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Despite the topic being a fairly serious one, the team was able to keep to their usual Will and Grace humor, inserting other trending issues at the moment such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce and Ryan Lochte’s Dancing with the Stars protest incident as well as Fifty Shades of Grey and Hamilton.
The series, in the mini-episode also advocates for every American to vote and are using the hashtag #VoteHoney, which will appear at the end of the video.
