The foursome briefly reunited for an election-themed sketch, which featured the actors slipping back into their old characters and talking all things Trump and Clinton. The clip quickly went viral, racking up more than 6 million views on YouTube.
“It was like a switch being pulled back and it felt like we just had a two-week hiatus,” Messing told The Hollywood Reporter. “After eight years together, we had a shorthand and it was completely intact. There was something really thrilling about that; to know that that role will forever be ingrained in our bones and we’ll have that connection forever.
