I’m writing this to remind everyone that the much anticipated return of Will & Grace happens on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9/8c on NBC. I can’t wait!
After a 10 year hiatus, the network decided to bring back the fan favorite. The cast came together for a 10 minute pre-election (2016 Presidential Election) special urging people to vote. It was so popular that NBC began talks about a possible series revival … and the rest is history!
Will & Grace originally ran from 1998 – 2006 with more than 200 episodes, and was consistently in the Nielsen top 20 for over half of its run. The show brought gay characters (Will and Jack) to the forefront to critical acclaim. It was fresh, hilarious, sweet and also tackled issues that plague today’s society. It was also a break-out for co-stars Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, who gained huge fan bases from their character roles. I smile thinking about what’s to come from those two this season.
Will & Grace earned a staggering 83 Emmy nominations, winning 16. You know there won’t be any lack of viewership when it returns!
To add to the excitement, NBC has already announced a 13 episode second season. I think they know it’s going to be a hit – yet again.
These four actors (Eric McCormick, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally) – and the characters they play – are pure magic. Check out the Will & Grace website here.
