“Will and Grace” could be returning to NBC, TheWrap has learned.

Negotiations are in the very early stages with creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick and actors Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes.

The murmurs of mounting a full-blown reunion for the long-running NBC sitcom began when the gang got back together to reprise their characters in a skit about the upcoming Presidential election.

After filming, the sets they built recreating Will’s New York apartment were left in tact at the specific request of producers — with the assumption being that they’d return for more scenes if not entire episodes — an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.

In the skit, which has racked up over 6 million views on Youtube, Will and Grace, of course, are voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while Karen is committed to her close personal friend, Donald Trump. She helped him pick out Melania and everything.

“She’s going to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will ensure your civil rights,” said Grace.

“Yeah, but I don’t like that she wears pants,” Jack retorts.

In the end, naturally, it’s the ironclad argument that Katy Perry is voting for Clinton that gets the pivotal swing voter on board.

The skit was a hit with fans, and seemed to reassure everyone that “Will and Grace,” which went off the air 10 years ago, still had relevant points to make in today’s modern world and political climate.
