Fans of NBC's comedy Will & Grace have been asking for a reunion ever since the comedy was canceled nearly 10 years ago, and it looks like they will be getting the next best thing. The network has confirmed that Eric McCormack will be making a guest appearance on Debra Messing's current show The Mysteries of Laura.

McCormack will be playing Dr. Andrew Devlin, a character who was once engaged to Laura but is now her prime suspect in a murder case. Since Messing and McCormack's banter on Will & Grace is what made their chemistry great, it will be interesting to see if it is still there when they are forced to be more serious, as this show dictates.

Bringing McCormack in is also kind of a desperate attempt to reel in new viewers in the hopes that they will stick around and continue watching. The Mysteries of Laura follows Messing as Laura Diamond, a homicide detective in the NYPD who has to juggle her life as a detective along with her life as the mother to two twin boys. Her ex-husband is already in the picture, so it will be interesting to see how bringing in an ex-fiance mixes things up.

So far, the ratings have not been great for this show, but if McCormack's appearance is a hit, do you think maybe the producers would keep him in the loop as a recurring character? Would we really want to watch Messing and McCormack together regularly if they are not portraying Will and Grace? Should the show's producers even attempt to bring in Sean Hayes and Megan Mullaly? Are you excited to learn that these two are finally reunited? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
