Will & Grace are BACK in amazing new musical clip ahead of revival
The Will & Grace revival is nearly here and the cast has filmed a very musical trailer.
The beloved gay sitcom is being revived this year for a comeback series, with Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally all reprising their roles.
The show’s long-anticipated revival is set to return later this year for a run of 12 episodes. The first trailer for the show’s return dropped today, and it’s definitely worth waiting for.
The video features lead characters Will Truman and Grace Adler coming out of a ery meta meeting with TV network NBC, after agreeing to revive the show.
Breaking the fourth wall, the characters them travel to the original apartment set from the 1990s show, where they encounter Karen Walker and Jack McFarland.
The foursome eventually break into a show-stopping song-and-dance number, which is really the gayest way possible to tease one of TV’s gayest shows.
Check out the clip below.
Debra Messing recently revealed that the show will have a broader LGBTQ focus in the new season, hinting it may tackle transgender and queer issues.
She said: “It’s a whole new world now where being gay and lesbian is not something that people are hiding like they did when we started almost 20 years ago.
“I think that there’s an opportunity to now celebrate all the other initials of LGBTQ.
“It will be great to come out of this next round and feel like we’re normalizing an even larger segment of underrepresented people on prime-time television.”
The show will also address the Trump administration, after an election-themed episode that aired last year.

Messing added: “‘Will & Grace’ has always been political. It’s always dealt with what is happening in our culture and in our country. It’s absolutely going to be addressing in real time what’s happening.
“That’s what we always did. That was never the agenda but that’s just part of the DNA as a TV show. That’s not gonna change.”
She added: “I feel proud that we were able to finally represent the gay and lesbian community in mainstream media and change minds and hearts
“Of course, we couldn’t do everything all at once, but I think we pushed the ball very, very far down the field. Now, the goal post is in a different place and I think that there’s obviously more to go.”
