Remember the original series finale of Will & Grace? Recently, co-creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan spoke with E! Online about how the upcoming NBC TV show revival will deal with that finale.
The Will & Grace revival will see the return of cast members Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally. The sitcom originally ran on NBC for eight seasons before ending in 2006.
In the original series finale of Will & Grace, we saw the titular characters estranged for many years. So how will the revival address this plot point? Speaking to E! Online, Mutchnick said a lot of time was spent on figuring out how to deal with the finale’s time jump:
I would say this: We’ve just come out of a story camp that lasted about three months. That’s where we break and write all of the episodes that we will be filming in August or whenever we start. I will tell you that almost more than anything, more time went into figuring out how are we going to reintroduce the show and what were the rules going to be and how were we going to address that finale.”
He then revealed that the revival will explain what happened:
And we can tell you this much: They are very much living in that apartment in 2017 in the month of September, on the 28th of September at 9:00. That’s when you’re going to meet up with them again and they are going to explain to you exactly what happened so you know the rules moving forward and you won’t feel like anything is left open.”
Will & Grace returns to NBC on September 28th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
