"WILL & GRACE" ARE BACK!! 

 

Honey, The ‘Will & Grace’ Revival Trailer Is A Gay Musical Extravaganza

It’s as if they never said goodbye.

 

By Cole Delbyck

Will, Grace, Karen and Jack are ready for their close-up. 

NBC released the first trailer for the “Will & Grace” revival on Monday during the network’s upfront presentation, and, honey, it’s everything you loved about the classic sitcom and more. 

The nearly six-minute clip finds Eric McCormack trying to convince a reluctant Debra Messing to revive “Will & Grace” by bringing her to the show’s old set. There, they find Megan Mullally as Karen, who’s apparently been taking a “cat nap” on the apartment couch for the last decade, and Sean Hayes’ Jack who’s showing the space to a studly potential tenant. 

Before we know it, Messing launches into a full-blown musical dream sequence to the tune of “As If We Never Said Goodbye” from the musical “Sunset Boulevard.” 

Replacing the song’s lyrics with playful jabs at her “Will & Grace” family, like “tightly wound queer” and “the drunk who’s bi,” Messing and cast come together in song, as they dance, selfie and do their best jazz hands in unison. 

Don’t ever say goodbye again, OK?
