‘Will & Grace’ Is Back
‘Will & Grace’, the groundbreaking NBC sitcom that helped normalize gay characters in the 1990s is back – same cast, same writers, same studio audience warm-up guy.
NBC sees the revival as a comfort food that viewers will gobble whole: pure nostalgia.The nostalgia boom includes “Fuller House” on Netflix, ABC’s coming revival of “Roseanne” and a new incarnation of “Law & Order” on NBC.
“Will & Grace” stands apart, though, because all four of the original leads are back and because they rather miraculously seem not to have aged.
The formula that made the show a big hit and Emmy-winning machine the first time around is unchanged. The writers have decided to pretend that the 2006 finale, which found Will and Grace married (not to each other) with kids, never happened. Will and Grace are back to being single and living together. Jack still bursts through doors without knocking. Karen, still giggling about popping pills, sidles over from her mansion from time to time.
Will & Grace returns to NBC on Thursday, Sept 28 at 9/8c.
