UPDATE: Will & Grace is officially back, at least for a 10 minute scene debating the merits of Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump, and it's as if it never left our screens. Who else is totally not surprised that Karen Walker is a Trump supporter? Click play above!

Will & Grace is back. Sort of. The stars, Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, ignited the Internet nostalgia machine with social media posts of their reunion.

First came the behind-the-scenes photos of them together again. Then each cast member teased the return with rehearsal posts on set, namely in Will Truman's apartment. And then came the video teasing the assembly of heroes.

"A band of heroes WILL assemble to protect the world from aliens AND 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 teaser video tweeted by the cast said. The words in caps were in red and combine to "Will & Grace is back."

At the end of the video below, Mullally can be heard doing her Karen Walker voice and chanting "Trump!" and "Make America bueno again!"

Could this be a stunt for Hillary Clinton? Messing is currently campaigning for the Democratic presidential nominee.

Will & Grace ran for eight seasons on NBC from 1998-2006. The show, about a gay man and his best friend, was considered a trailblazer during its run.

"I think Will & Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody has ever done so far," Vice President Joe Biden said while addressing the change in attitude about gay marriage during a 2012 visit to Meet the Press. "This is evolving."

Hayes, Mullally and McCormack recently reunited to honor director James Burrows for an NBC special. McCormack and Messing also reunited in 2015 on screen for Messing's series The Mysteries of Laura.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
