    Debra Messing doesn't want to do another Will & Grace revival, but she might reconsider in 30 years.

    Messing played Grace Adler in the popular sitcom, which ran on NBC from 1998 to 2006. A decade later, in 2017, the series was revived, but the actress tells People the revival "was supposed to be only 10 episodes, and then it turned into three seasons."

    "It was a gift to all of us to reacquaint ourselves with all of these characters as middle-aged people [dealing] with middle-aged issues," Messing continued. "That was really a privilege that when you're doing a sitcom, you don't have."

    However, Messing, now 53, doesn't see herself returning as Grace anytime soon.

    "The only way that I could see another iteration is if it was like Golden Girls in Boca Raton," she said. "So I think we're going to have to wait another 30 years. So we can talk again in 30 years and see where we're at. Until then, just watch reruns."

    Will & Grace is available to stream on Hulu.
