The gang are back together and chuckling adorably in the very first Will & Grace revival teaser.
NBC dropped a fun little tidbit for fans on Friday (May 12), ahead of the first full trailer launching on Monday (May 15) as part of the Peacock Network’s Upfronts presentation to the press.
Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are back together in Will and Grace’s apartment nearly 20 years on in the clip above, giggling and teasing one another between scenes.
If the cast are having this much fun making Will & Grace again, just imagine how much fun we’re all going to have watching it when it finally hits our screens next season.
The dream of a Will & Grace reunion series came about, in large part, because of a viral video released ahead of last year’s US presidential election, in which all four original cast members got back together on set for the first time in nearly a decade.
In that mini-episode — which you can watch below — Will and Grace battled with Karen in trying to sway Jack away from voting for Donald Trump. Unfortunately, we all know how that turned out…
However, this viral video sparked so much interest that the cast almost immediately went back into negotiations with NBC and, just a few months later, 12 all-new episodes were commissioned.
When Megan Mullally was recently in the UK to tour with her band Nancy & Beth, she admitted she was gobsmacked that the reunion came together so quickly.
“It’s never happened before in the history of half-hour network television,” Mullally marvelled. “In the states, they’ve never brought a show back – the same exact show [with the] same cast, same director, same lighting designer.”
To hold you over until the trailer launch next week, feast your eyes on the first cast posters below and just imagine how amazing it’s going to be to see Will, Grace, Jack and Karen together again:
