* Will & Grace returns to television September 28
* All four series stars are back for the sitcom revival
* Guest stars for this season include Jane Lynch, Harry Connick Jr. and Ben Platt
Almost a dozen years after it aired its “finale” episode, Will & Grace (and Jack & Karen) are finally back on television.
The much-anticipated revival of Will & Grace premieres Thursday, September 28 on NBC, and the network is so sure of its success, it’s already renewed the comedy for a second season.
The Emmy-winning sitcom originally ran for eight seasons, ending its run in May 2006. But, like 90s fashion and music, the show — and characters — rode a wave of nostalgia to return to the airwaves once again.
All four original stars — Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes — are returning for the revival, and producers just teased guest spots from Jane Lynch, Harry Connick Jr. and Tony winner Ben Platt, among others.
Times have changed though since Will & Grace’s original run, and while some issues — like same-sex relationships — have become increasingly more mainstream, other things — like watching live TV on an actual television — are seemingly remnants of the past.
