Will & Grace Revival: Everything We Know So Far
From 1998 to 2006, Will & Grace blazed a new path on television as one of the first series to feature two lead gay characters. Despite initial criticisms, the series became wildly popular and went for eight incredible seasons before coming to an end in 2006. Now, in a time of endless reboots and remakes, fans got what they wanted when it was announced a Will & Grace revival is happening! With a 11 years since the last season, a lot has changed and there will be some new things to catch up on when it comes to the lives of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen, so here is everything we know so far about the Will & Grace revival:
8. Thursday Nights
When Will & Grace returns on Thursday, September 28 at 9 p.m., it will be like nothing has changed for diehard fans as NBC has placed the show exactly where it left off in its regular Thursday night spot. In the days before Netflix and streaming, Thursday nights after dinner were primetime television slots, and NBC will try to recapture those glory days with Will & Grace anchoring a lineup that includes Superstore, The Good Place and Great News.
7. Original Cast and Crew
There was no way that they were going to bring the show back without the four leads, so of course Eric McCormack will be back as Will, Debra Messing as Grace, Megan Mullally as Karen, and Sean Hayes as Jack. The four stars aren’t the only big names returning though! Behind the camera Jack Burrows, who directed every episode of the original series, is back as the director for the revival! Originally planned as 12 episodes, the revival has now been expanded to 16 episodes and Burrows will be at the helm of every one!
