Will we go back to single Will and Grace and what will happen to Jack and Karen? While NBC has launched strong new drama entries under Greenblatt - including series such as "The Blacklist" and "Blindspot", as well as Dick Wolf's "Chicago Fire" and its offshoots - the network has struggled in comedy, where it has failed for years to find a hit. I don't think you want to see them aging with children and you know, we love the essence of the old show. Also missing will be Debbie Reynolds, who died last December, and the series will take time to explain the absence of Grace's mother Bobbi Adler. This means that this was not just some flash-in-the-pan revival as many speculated, and there could be a long-lasting future here. So fans would expect the same set of characters with the same set of baggage from 2006.

"So for Jack, we've created something new", he added.

The first season of the revival would give fans a confusing setting with Will and Grace living together again. The bitterness from that long-ago lawsuit has been expunged, and so has that series finale. Both having a family of their own and sadly hadn't spoken in decades.

The cast includes Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally. Photo via NBC Universal, Inc. "They live their lives".

Besides, the headlines change so much these days that "it's not easy" to keep it topical, Mutchnick said.


Mutchnick said they will re-establish the show by re-setting the rules, irrespective of the finale.

Although Harry Connick Jr.'s Leo will return in some form as Grace's beau, their respective kids have been well and truly given the axe. Instead, the show will pick back up with the gang all together, because let's be honest, that's what we're here for. In a recent interview, Kohan announced that the revival would ignore the ending entirely. It was regarded as revolutionary because of the way it helped promote acceptance and gay rights. Once being praised by former Vice President Joe Biden. I didn't have the DNA to speak for an entire community. Bob Greenblatt, NBC's chairman, made the announcement Thursday at a TCA event, revealing that the newly ordered season - the show's 10th overall - will consist of 13 episodes. NBC and its creators emphasized they would not dive head first into anything political. "I think our show is a situation comedy".

This rather decisive storyline put the show's creators and writers in a hard situation when it came to re-introducing the characters during a time in which they all should have been jaded ex-friends.

The cast and creators are still proud of what the original run of Will & Grace to raise awareness about gay and lesbian issues. "They make it by embracing and celebrating the diverse faces of America". "We have fantastic young talent in that writing room keeping us on our toes and keeping it fresh".

Watch as the fabulous foursome get into hilarious new high jinks from the upcoming season - and relive a few zany moments from the past.
