Ten years after it aired its series finale, Will & Grace is coming back. Looking back, it was a landmark show for the LGBT community: Ellen DeGeneres may have been the first star to come out as gay on a TV sitcom, but Will & Grace made it acceptable to the mainstream audience. When the series originally ended — after eight seasons and 16 Emmy Awards — it was a difficult thing for its star, Debra Messing, to take. In fact, when the show went away, she says it created a void that felt a lot like losing a loved one. (Click on the media bar below to hear Debra Messing)
New episode of the revived Will & Grace will air on NBC this fall. Here’s the trailer — what do you think? Are you excited for its return?
