After the show’s series finale 11 years ago, Will & Grace fans were certain they’d seen the last of the characters they loved — well, aside from the reruns airing all over the world. But the thought of new episodes was just a distant dream. That is, until the cast reunited last year — in character — for a YouTube video supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. That got the wheels turning over at NBC and, after a few months of making the necessary arrangements, it was announced that Will & Grace would be returning with new episodes! The news got even better last week, when the network announced there will be two seasons on the way. Of course, the big question is whether the characters have changed over the last 11 years, or will they be just like we left them? (Well, before the original series finale, at least.) Eric McCormack, who plays Will on the show, hopes they haven’t changed too much.
Will & Grace returns to NBC September 28.
