WILL & GRACE is back! The original series spanned 206 episodes between 1998 and 2006 and now, more than a decade later, Will, Grace, Jack and Karen are returning to our screens. Legendary director James Burrows, who directed every single episode of the original series, will return to direct and serve as an executive producer. Original showrunners Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will return as the showrunners.
In the original series finale Grace, pregnant with a daughter, chose to re-marry her ex-husband, Leo. Will, meanwhile, reunited with his old boyfriend Vince and eventually raised a son with him. Will and Grace drifted apart, but reunited 20 years later when their children met in college and then rekindled their friendship when their kids got married. And BFFs Karen and Jack ended up living together along with Karen’s maid Rosario.
We’re unsure how the revival series will fit into the show’s original timeline, but all four original cast members — Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes — will return and it’s likely we’ll also see other recurring characters from the original series.
WILL & GRACE will air this fall on NBC (see NBC’s fall 2017 schedule).
