You could be watching Will & Grace again sooner than you thought.

'Will & Grace' fans, get excited! Your favourite television series could be back on your screens in no time at all.

Actor and show cast member Megan Mullally has pretty much confirmed the '90s sitcom could be making a revival a decade after the series ended.

Mullally, who played Karen Walker on the Emmy-winning program between 1998 and 2006, told PrideSource in an interview that there "is a very good chance" a reboot could be happening on its original home network, NBC.

"All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen," Mullally said.

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

The revelation comes following a surprise election-themed webisode of the show dropped in September to the delight of fans everywhere and tweet from Mullally herself featuring her fellow castmates.

According to ET Online, unofficial reports suggest the revival could be happening in October 2017 as a 10-episode hark back to the classics of the series with a modern twist, possibly featuring a world shaped by new President-elect Donald Trump.

"In that made-up world -- it couldn't be a better time... I think more so now than even when we started," Mullally said.

"And who would have ever -- I mean, it's heinous that it's because Donald Trump is the president-elect."

We'll have to keep our eyes peeled to see if this jewel of television becomes reality in 2017.
