The main cast of Will & Grace are all successful actors in the TV industry and have gone on to produce and star in a number of popular TV projects. (I'm still not over Perception getting cancelled.) Still, we often equate them with Will & Grace, and there's nothing more tickling than learning a reboot is happening and that the reboot is bringing back all of our favorite cast members. Except for maybe when those very same cast members share the first images from the set. So, without further ado, here's Will & Grace's Eric McCormack sharing our first look at the cast.
If you'd like a better look at what's going on behind-the-scenes with the show, comedy writer Max Mutchnick shared this Twitter look at the Will & Grace writer's room, which is empty but still adorable.
And series lead Megan Mullaly shared this look of herself and Sean Hayes back in costume as Karen and Jack, which may be my favorite first look at the revival, yet.
Sure, none of these images give away what to expect from the revival, and none spoil anything about the new series, but they do serve to make us more than a little bit excited about what is to come. A few months ago, speculation was rampant that NBC might be mulling over the concept of reviving the classic sitcom after interest was high in a fun shoot the cast did related to the election. Then scheduling worked out, and NBC went ahead and announced that Will & Grace would, in fact, be returning for a limited revival series. That series will consist of 10 episodes and will air next broadcast season, and now it looks like NBC is working a little bit ahead and starting to work on the new series.
There's nothing like seeing a cast reunite after a really long time, and there's even more icing on this cake than usual, as Will & Grace will, in fact, be coming back for more episodes. A lot has changed in the comedy landscape since the sitcom first aired on NBC between 1998 and 2006. We'll have to wait and see if Will & Grace changes with the times or goes for more of a throwback vibe to cater to the series' original fans. Honestly, we're pretty happy either way.
We'll let you know as soon as the first Will & Grace footage drops, but I'd expect to be waiting for at least a little while. For now, you can take a look at what NBC has coming up with our midseason TV premiere schedule.
