Will & Grace and This Is Us will air on the same night in the US fall TV schedule

Honey, put down that deodorant stick because Will & Grace is back to make your Thursday nights funny again this fall (or winter, if you prefer).

As TVLine reports, NBC has been busy announcing their scheduled line-up for later this year, and it’s going to be pairing the long awaited revival of TV’s sassiest sitcom with its breakout hit of last year This Is Us at 8/7c and 9/8c respectively.

The latter show debuted with over 10 million viewers last September and actually increased in viewership as the season went on, so pairing it with Will & Grace is a very clever move on their part.

Not only that, but the revival is going to be 12 episodes long rather than the regular 10, so we are getting even more Karen comebacks for our money.

Elsewhere, NBC has announced that undercover military series The Brave will air on Mondays at 10/9c, while the lengthily-titled Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders will also air on Thursdays at 10/9c.

Also exciting is the virtual reality thriller Reverie, which stars Person of Interest and The L Word actress Sarah Shahi.

The network’s other fall shows include A.P. Bio, Mindy Kaling’s Champions, Good Girls and Rise.

Will & Grace actress Deborah Messing shared a teaser for the new series on her Twitter page, ahead of the full first trailer, which will drop tomorrow (May 15).

If that’s not enough hype, two posters have also been released that are making us wish it was the fall already.

Megan Mullally, who plays Karen, recently said: “It’s never happened before in the history of half-hour network television.

“In the States, they’ve never brought a show back – the same exact show [with the] same cast, same director, same lighting designer. The main priority is to have it be funny, and then I think it just goes from there.”
