Plot Synopsis

WILL & GRACE returns for a 16-episode first season on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on NBC. Stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally -- each of whom received at least one Emmy Award for their respective performances throughout the original series -- are back, and original series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan are as showrunners and executive producers. Legendary director James Burrows, who directed every episode of the show during its initial eight-year run, is on board to direct and executive produce. In the season opener, "11 Years Later," Will and Grace both falter when their political beliefs are put to the test. Jack and Karen help Will and Grace hide their secret shame from each other, but the truth finally comes out. Guest stars for the first season include: Ben Platt; Kyle Bornheimer as Lenny, a security guard; Bobby Cannavale, returning as Will's cop ex-boyfriend Vince D'Angelo; Jane Lynch; Andrew Rannells; and many more. Eight weeks before the premiere -- on Thursday, August 3 -- NBC announced it renewed WILL & GRACE for a 13-episode second season.

One day before the series premiere, NBC announced that it's bringing the ultimate fan experience to life with the "Will & Grace After Party," celebrating all of the reasons we love the iconic sitcom. The after show will be available Friday mornings, the day after the broadcast airing, of the first six episodes of the season, and can be found across the NBC app, the WILL & GRACE social accounts, YouTube channel, E! platforms and NBC's participating owned and affiliate station sites starting September 29. Set in a New York-style bar, the "Will & Grace After Party" show combines pop-culture maven Kristin Dos Santos with WILL & GRACE superfans for a viewing party, games, trivia and exclusive behind-the-scenes material - not to mention surprise appearances from the show's creative team and special celebrity guests. Over the course of the show's first six episodes, "After Party" will provide an all-encompassing fan-centric journey through current and past episodes of Will & Grace and its influence on pop-culture since its initial debut in 1998. Burning questions will be covered like who had better boyfriends: Will or Grace? What were some of Jack's best and worst side hustles? How does Karen manage to drink so much and stay alive? The "After Party" will cover it all with a wink and a smile with real fans getting to be the stars of the show right up until last call.
