Get ready for “Just Jack 2017!”
NBC has unveiled the first full trailer for the highly anticipated revival of Will & Grace.
The new promo for the revival debuted at the NBC Upfronts presentation in New York.
In the new clip Eric McCormack tries to convince Debra Messing to star in the sitcom again, eventually bringing her to the set of the show where they run into Karen (Megan Mullally) who “laid down for a disco nap” and Jack (Sean Hayes) who is renting out the fake apartment to a gentleman caller. The four then end up performing a showstopper musical number, “As If We Never Said Goodbye,” from Sunset Boulevard.
“Well that was gay,” McCormack says after they finish their song.
The Peacock network announced that it was resurrecting “Must-See TV” with Will & Grace returning to its Thursday home followed by the new series Great News and ratings juggernaut This Is Us.
The new batch of episodes will reunite the original cast along with creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, who will serve as show runners. James Burrows, who helmed every episode of the original run, will return to direct. NBC had originally ordered a 10-episode ninth season but added two additional episodes—for an hour long Christmas episode—and the network hopes to up the number even more.
“It’s possible,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt told Deadline. “It’s my hope that we will have more than that.”
