The new official trailer for the next season of Will & Grace has been released, and it doesn’t disappoint.
Debra Messing says that the cast wanted to make “everybody laugh as hard as we did before, or more”.
In the trailer, Will and Grace are playing an updated 2017 version of guess who on a smartphone, and they are – you guessed it – still basically reading each other’s minds.
Fans will be excited to learn that NBC commissioned an additional four episodes for this season, making it a sixteen episode season.
Will & Grace fans will be doubly excited to find out that the show has already been picked up for a second season, reports Digital Spy.
Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, gave the announcement on August 3 giving fans of the show even more to be happy about.
While fans are delighted to see the main cast back and eagerly waiting for the series to air later this month, it has been revealed that one character will not be making a comeback.
“Shelley has decided to retire,” said the show’s producer, Max Matchnick. “It was with a heavy heart that she gave us that information and that we received it, but it is the way that it goes. It is a choice that she has made.”
“We really wanted Shelley to be a part of this series, so we find ourselves having to figure that out moving forward. It was not an easy decision to make, but it’s one that she made.”
