‘Will & Grace’ is an American sitcom that airs on the NBC network. Created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, the show is set in New York City and revolves around the friendship between gay lawyer Will Truman and interior designer Grace Adler.
For those unaware, ‘Will & Grace’ is a show that goes back two decades, with Season 1 having premiered on September 21, 1998. Since making its debut, the show ran for a total of eight seasons, with the Season 8 finale airing on May 18, 2006. During this phase of its run, the show was the highest-rated sitcom among adults in the age group of 18-49 years from 2001 to 2005, and it also enjoyed tremendous critical acclaim, winning several awards. However, it was shelved owing to internal conflicts.
After a lull of 11 long years, NBC decided to put the show back in production, after the show’s cast reunited for a 10-minute special in September 2016, urging Americans to vote in the 2016 US Presidential Elections. The special was received well, and NBC put its plan of reviving the show into motion. Subsequently, Season 9 of ‘Will & Grace’ premiered on September 28, 2017. Even before Season 9 premiered, NBC renewed the show for Season 10, which was aired in Fall 2018. Then, on March 17, 2018, months ahead of Season 10’s premiere, NBC renewed the show again for Season 11. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
Will & Grace Cast: Who is in it?
The original show consisted of four main characters, all of whom return in the revival cycle of the show which began in 2017. Further, creators/executive producers Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, are back too, along with director/executive producer James Burrows.
Eric McCormack reprised his role as Will Truman, while Debra Messing made a return as Grace Adler. Megan Mullally also returned as Karen Walker, while Sean Hayes reprised his role as Jack McFarland.
There are a few other characters who make recurring appearances, but the sitcom primarily revolves around the aforementioned characters. All four are expected to make a comeback and reprise their roles in Seasons 10 and 11, because frankly, without them, ‘Will & Grace’ would lose its identity.
