So, earlier this year it was revealed that one of our favourite sitcoms was making a comeback – and now, new details about the much anticipated Will and Grace revival have been revealed.
Fans of the series may remember the 2006 finale which took a glance into the future, revealing that Will and Grace has gone their separate ways, each finding partners and starting families of their own.
With such a definitive ending, the idea of a revival seemed like an all but impossible dream – until now.
Writers of the shows's upcoming 12-episode revival have decided to completely dismiss the events of the final episode and continue as if it never went to air.
According to Entertainment Weekly, when Will and Grace returns in September, the main characters will still be single, childless, and living in their New York City apartment.
Oh, and Jack will still be living across the hall, and Karen will still reside in luxury Fifth Avenue mansion.
“We spent most of our time trying to figure out what would be the way to make the show the best version of itself coming back after 11 years,” says executive producer/creator, Max Mutchnick.
“That finale really caused us a lot of grief. You write a finale because a show is over. You never think that it’s coming back again.”
“When the decision was made to bring the series back, we were like, well, we left them with kids, right?” added executive producer/creator David Kohan.
“We frankly did not want to see them being either good parents or bad parents. We wanted them to be Will and Grace.”
We couldn't be happier about the decision to leave the characters exactly how there were, because honestly, we can't imagine them any other way.
Will and Grace is set to return to it's home on NBC on September 28, but until then, you'll find us binge watching the first eight seasons.
