Eric McCormack shuts down rumors of feud between Will & Grace's Debra Messing and Megan Mullally... as show comes to an end after 11 seasons

Back in July it was announced that Will & Grace would again be coming to an end, with the show's producers announcing not that the reboot was cancelled, but had simply chosen not to come back for a fourth season.

And ever since rumors that a feud between co-stars Debra Messing, 51, and Megan Mullally, 60, was at the root of the show's end have been swirling, subsequently intensified by a number of cryptic social media posts.

But in an interview published on Sunday, Will & Grace co-star Eric McCormack, 56, laid those rumors to rest.

'It seems crazy. It is crazy! I think people worried about that entirely too much,' McCormack told Us Weekly. 'The four of us get along like a house on fire, we always have.'

Feud rumors first surfaced when observant fans noticed that Messing and Mullally had unfollowed each other on Instagram back in August. 

The co-stars were notably missing from each other's list of followers after Mullally penned a now-deleted Instagram story about feeling 'the best' now that she's lost her 'attachment to somebody.' 

Her obscure message surrounded the topic of about 'people who aren't good for you.'

'One of the best feelings is finally losing your attachment to somebody who isn't good for you,' she wrote. 'Don't ask people for directions if they've never been where you're going!'  

A few weeks prior, Messing had uploaded a post urging fans to vote for Will & Grace for the Emmys, tagging everyone from the series' director James Burrows and co-creator Max Mutchnick abut failing to tag Mullally.   

Both women still follow their co-stars Sean Hayes, 49, and McCormack, who follow them both in return. 

When the show's team announced that the 11th season of Will & Grace would be the last, it was made obvious that NBC hadn't chosen to cancel the show, it was actually those on the production that made the call, which upset fans even further.

'We think of the Will & Grace episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis — 51 is not enough, 53 is too many. That is why, after consulting with the cast, we all have decided this will be the final season of Will & Grace,' the statement from production read. 

Messing seemed to confirm this in an Instagram post announcing the end of the show, writing: 'The creative team (pictured) got together and we decided it was the right time.'

And, with the news that it was a cast ad crew decision coupled with the online kerfuffle, fans began to think a feud was the reason behind the show coming to an end, but McCormack debunked that rumor, too. 

'The show’s ending because we want to make sure that it ends up properly, that we go out on top, that it never gets sort of lost in the shuffle,' he told Us Weekly. 'We’re going to go out, I think those 18 episodes airing in a row, NBC’s doing it all at once, which I used to love that. So it’s going to go big. It’s going to go out in a way that I’m really going to be proud of.'

The Will & Grace cast were first thrown together when the show began in 1998, with Messing playing the titular role of interior designer Grace, and Mullally playing her alcoholic assistant Karen.

The show originally ran until 2006 before coming to a close, but it was rebooted in 2017 after the cast reunited to film a promotional short for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016.

The reboot was so well-received, NBC re-commissioned the sitcom for a comeback, returning for a ninth season in 2017.

Two further seasons were commissioned following the show's success, but it was announced last month that the 11th season would be their last.
