That’s right, Will and Grace reunion official. Today, Wednesday, 18th January, network bosses announced that the show will air in the 2017-2018 TV season.
Network bosses at NBC have officially ordered a special 10 episode revival of the hit TV show which ran for 8 seasons between 1998-2006 and aired over 180 episodes. Original cast members Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are scheduled to be in the revival show to the delight of fans who will be more than excited to see their favourite roommates together once again.

The original series creators of the show, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, are on board in the revival episodes of the show which focused around Will, played by Eric McCormack, a gay lawyer and fellow roommate Grace, played by Debra Messing, who is a straight interior designer. Director James Burrows is also on board.
Speculation of its reunion has been rumoured since October last year as it was confirmed that talks of a revival show were being undertaken and fans have been patiently waiting to hear when the show would return since that moment.
One of the big questions to ask now is, how will they start the revival off? At the series finale, we last saw Will and Grace come face to face while helping their children move into college. The two had not seen each other in years due to a falling so how the show plans to pick things up from there will be the up for much speculation. Will they pick things up from that moment? Jump ahead a bit? Or do some backtracking?
