‘Will & Grace’ Reunion Special to Air on NBC Next Month
It’s been ten years since television’s other iconic group of friends, Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack, graced our TV screens on the hit NBC sitcom Will & Grace. The beloved, at times controversial show aired from 1998 until 2006, and now in 2016, the show will be brought back to the small screen as part of a special reunion show.
Set to air on February 21, the special two-hour reunion will bring the cast of Will & Grace back together for one final fling in honor of iconic television producer James Burrows, who worked on 188 episodes of Will & Grace as well as on countless other fan-favorite NBC sitcoms like Friends, Cheers, and Frasier.
The four main members of the core cast, Eric McCormack as reasonable, straight-shooting Will, Debra Messing as neurotic Grace, Sean Hayes as flamboyant Jack, and Meghan Mullally as privileged, over-the-top Karen, are all signed on to attend, according to a report. In addition, the television special is also set to bring together cast-members from NBC’s other beloved sitcoms, including lead actors from Friends, Cheers, and Frasier.
Appearing at the Television Critics Association press tour, actor Hayes (Jack) confirmed their participation, saying, “We’ve confirmed all casts from all shows. On January 24 we tape, and it airs February 21. It’s the reunion of all reunion shows. It’s going to be unlike anything everyone’s ever seen.”
Considering the line-up attached to this reunion special, we’ll co-sign that grand statement, Sean! Now all that’s left to do is celebrate—Karen Walker-style, of course.
