‘Will & Grace’ Revival: Watch First Full Trailer for NBC’s Reunion Series

In anticipation of NBC’s “Will & Grace” revival this fall, Will, Grace, Jack and Karen have reunited in the first official trailer for the special event series.

The five-minute-long trailer begins as the titular characters exit the office of Bob Greenblatt, the president of NBC Entertainment.

“Again, Bob, so excited,” Will says. “I can’t believe we’re back, taking the old peacock for the another ride around the … “Thing,” Grace says, finishing his sentence. “Riding the old peacock? You know you got the job, right? You left all your lipstick on this a—,” she reprimands.

Is ‘Will & Grace’ Revival a Musical Series? (Watch)

The limited 12-episode run brings back cast members Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally with original series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, who will serve as showrunners and executive producers. James Burrows, who directed the entire eight-season run of the original series, is back as director and executive producer on the revival. Universal Television is producing.

“Will & Grace” aired on NBC from 1998 to 2006 with over 200 episodes. The series was one of the first broadcast shows to feature gay characters, revolving around a gay man, Will (McCormack), and his best friend, Grace (Messing), along with their friends, Jack (Hayes) and Karen (Mullally).

Last week, NBC released a teaser, which teased a possible musical number would be featured in the revival series — turns out, that teaser was teeing up Monday’s Upfront presentation at Radio City Music Hall, which welcomed the cast on stage for a surprise musical number. (Watch a clip below.)

    NBC is a failing network and must be desperate to try to bring back something that was laid to rest.

  2. Latasha Cruz says:

    I’m so excited that will and grace is coming back on I love this show

  3. cadavra says:

    Still no word if Shelley Morrison will be back as well. She was an invaluable member of the cast.

  4. Lorianna says:

    This is going to be a trainwreck.

  5. Baron Munchausen says:

    Some of the best writing on television were on Will & Grace. It’s the non-stop, machine-gun wit which made it stood out above the rest back in the days. This trailer showed age and lag from the quartet. I am not convinced this will endure; times have changed and I don’t know if they still command the key demo which are not the fans of “Golden Girls”. I certainly will be rooting for them.

  6. Meliton Orozco says:

    I was just talking to a friend about what the show could even be about, I mean in the finale they show that will and grace end up growing apart for years and not being friends. So this whole time I’m thinking geeze how will they get around that. This commercial confirms it for me, they’re saying “It’s like we never said good bye” which I interpret as them saying the finale never happened

    • I sure will watch this wonderful comedy as it always put a smile on my face, made me feel good after turning it off at the ending. Thank you for bringing this back more old shows are what the older generation needs instead of gun shows. This would bring a lot of boomers back to those days also. THANK YOU, THANK YOU

    Incredible fail.

    So happy to see them back. I cannot barely wait!!!
