Here's why the 'Will & Grace' revival will ignore the series finale

04 August 2017

Giving us back the tragic Will and Grace that we have come to love is the only way that the revival would work. The network announced today that it is renewing its revival of "Will & Grace" ahead of the show's September 28 premiere. NBC has finished three of the last four seasons as the top-rated primetime network in the 18-49 demo.

Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt is near a deal to renew his contract with NBC, extending his tenure as the network's top programming executive.

"We spent most of our time trying to figure out what would be the way to make the show the best version of itself coming back after 11 years", executive producer/creator Max Mutchnick tells EW.

"Will & Grace" ended eleven years ago and that particular ending appeared set in stone. When it was suggested that its pop cultural impact was a case of catching lightning in a bottle, Mullally quickly quipped: "And by lightning in the bottle, he's referring to my vagina". Will you watch the show when it returns to NBC this September?

Sen. Flake takes GOP to task over Trump
Flake: Well, it's a game of addition and not subtraction. "It's the president's responsibility to sign legislation or reject it". And Flake's broader concern about fragility of our institutions amid all of this recklessness is chilling.

Sean Hayes (Jack) and Megan Mullally (Karen) were joined at the launch by Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.

Despite that, it was politics that brought them together and sparked the idea of a reboot.

Mutchnick said, "We've grown up in the world like the rest of you have and we won't be writing the show like it's 1996 or '97, but writing these characters like they live in 2017".

Messing, for one, was just pleased to be yucking it up again.

The 54-year-old star said: "It's a lovely insane thing that happened".

"For the previous year it's been confusing time", star Debra Messing told TV critics, calling the series return "a lovely insane thing".

That means opportunities to tackle stories in the headlines, including a growing understanding in the public of transgender issues (and on the flip side, President Trump's recent decree to ban transgender soldiers from serving in the military). This show is not about Trump or Hillary Clinton.

How political will the reboot be? "Happy endings aren't amusing", he said. Instead, the show will stick to its original format with the friends living in the NYC apartment with Jack next door. No way, says Messing. And he said, "We can."'. "We stopped at B. And my hope is, now we can finish the alphabet".
