After reuniting in 2016 ahead of the Presidential election, the cast members of Will and Grace are making a long-awaited return to NBC in Fall 2017, after 11 years off air. At first Debra Messing was a bit hesitant about recreating her role of Grace Adler, but with a little musical prodding from Eric McCormack (Will) and an oblivious Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes), unaware of their fictional status, convinced her to stay.
That’s right, honey! A decade after their unforgettable eight-season run, comedy’s most fabulous foursome is back. Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally reprise their infamous roles as Will, Grace, Jack and Karen in this exclusive 12-episode event. There’s no doubt that with this crew’s indelible bond and all the happenings in today’s rollercoaster world, the banter will be on point. The legendary James Burrows, director of every original Will & Grace episode, returns along with a slew of razor-sharp jabs and dirty martinis. Behold once again, from the minds of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, TV’s wittiest ensemble ever. Did somebody say encore?
