What can fans expect from the big return of Will & Grace? Recently, the main cast spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the highly anticipated NBC series reboot.
The new season will see the return of stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes 11 years after the sitcom originally ended in 2006.
Speaking to THR, Messing revealed what made her and NBC excited for the reboot:
Originally we only committed to 10, and then we got the first episode and we did a table read of it and it was electric and the laughter was deafening and the president of the network was there and that night he asked for more and for next year as well.
I think once we sat down and read the words together and realized that the most fundamental thing that allowed us to do what we did back then is still there and alive, we were like, ‘OK, let’s do this. We have something to say. We have an opportunity to do something that’s never been done before. We get to explore characters 11 years later. We love each other and we love working together.’ Win, win, win all around.”
Mullally explained why she returned for the reboot, saying it was a “no-brainer”:
I would still be doing it from 2006. It was a no-brainer. Everything made me want to come back.”
The new season of Will & Grace debuts tonight, September 28th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
