Good news, Will & Grace devotees! You won’t be saying goodbye to your favorite fabulous foursome again anytime soon. As reported by Entertainment Weekly, NBC announced at the PaleyFest that the Will & Grace revival is renewed for Season 3. That means the world is guaranteed at least two more seasons of Karen’s iconic one-liners, Jack’s flawless wit, and the beautiful friendship between the show’s title platonic duo. As if the renewal wasn’t enough reason to pour yourself a martini, the network announced the news on the 20th anniversary of the day Will & Grace‘s pilot episode was filmed.
Sean Hayes highlighted the moment of serendipity on his Instagram page where he shared a picture of the cast from then and now. (Someone might want to check these actors’ attics for portraits, because they have not aged a day.) The actor captioned the photo, “It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago today we shot the pilot of @nbcwillandgrace.”
A more accurate caption may never have been written, because while Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack originally signed off after eight seasons in 2006, thanks to the revival, it feels like they never left NBC’s Must-See TV lineup. The revival has been met with both critical acclaim and fan support, and for fans of the show, having the gang back to commentate on the current political landscape while also making viewers laugh has been a gift from the comedy gods.
