While promoting her new film Why Him? Megan Mullally said that a new season of Will & Grace was possible.

News of a possible reboot began circulating just weeks after the cast reunited for an election year mini-episode which has been viewed more than 6 million times on YouTube.

Mullally, who played alcoholic socialite Karen Walker throughout the sitcom's 8 seasons, told Michigan's PrideSource that "there is a very good chance that that might happen."

"It's not happening right this second," Mullally said. "I mean, we're not rehearsing or anything like that. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize."

"But I can't really talk about it or say anything, because you know how it is," she added.

Mullally said that the timing "couldn't possibly be better."

"I think more so now than even when we started! And who would have ever – I mean, it's heinous that it's because Donald Trump is the president-elect. That's just a crazy sentence that nobody would have ever thought they'd utter. But having said that, at the same time, that just gives us carte blanche."

Will & Grace, which premiered in 1998, was the first prime time network sitcom to feature a gay lead in Eric McCormack's uptight lawyer, Will.
