"I literally am giddy," Debra told CNN on Saturday. "I never imagined it would have been possible 11 years later for us to reunite. But now that it's happening it's just very, very right. It's been a stressful year and I want to make people laugh, and I think more than anything that's what we are all feeling right now, is we want to make people laugh."
"It was the first of it's kind," Messing said of the hit series. "It was really the magic of the writers who were able to endear the characters to the audience. Their sexuality was a secondary thought and I think that was revolutionary at the time ... This was about four people living their lives and being silly and fun, and I think it was quietly revolutionary."
As for how the show plans to continue on, after the series finale ended with a broken friendship and a flash forward to the future, Debra said:
"I know, I know, I asked the same question. I was reassured that they have it all figured out and I was told it's in present day. I'll read the scripts end of July, we start shooting August 4 and then we are on in September."
The team recently reunited in 2016 for a short skit about the upcoming election, in which they encouraged voters not to choose Donald Trump. We don't imagine the US President will be supporting the re-booted sitcom, though it involves powerful women and gay men so, you know, he *probably* wasn't a fan in the first place.
Will & Grace, we're so excited to have you back!
