To hell with Winter. Fall is coming. It’s when we decide what to wear and where we’re going to watch the hotly anticipated return of classic TV comedy Will & Grace. If rumors are true, we are in for one goddess of a co-star, the regal Madame First Lady Mrs. Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama. Yes, the former First Lady of these United States will grace us with her presence on the small screen.
Michelle was beyond popular as a First Lady and that love-fest continues today. She praised the “glorious diversity” of the U.S. as she encouraged young Americans to be themselves, be loved, be healthy and be educated. Michelle’s “word is her bond,” unlike frequent Michelle plagiarist Melania Trump.
We’re certain the former first lady will be game for whatever — we all know she’s a ride or die chick, however there will be no crossing the line. Michelle Obama goes high and stays high. But the cast? Get Karen liquored up and let the games begin.
Anticipation for the revival is so high, the series has already been renewed for a second season – even before a single new episode has aired!
The four lead cast members (Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, Sean Hayes) will all be on-hand for the revival, however, no Rosario (Shelly Morrison). No, she wasn’t fired and we’re sure she’s completely over not being invited to Megan Mullally’s wedding, a wedding that happened while the show was in production and everyone else was invited. Did someone just gossip? Eighty-year-old Morrison, who played sassy domestic worker, and constant Karen foil, Rosario Salazar has retired from acting. Harry Connick Jr. will return as Grace’s ex-husband Leo and Dear Evan Hansen star Ben Platt will also appear in an episode.
The revival will completely disregard what happened in the 2006 finale. Remember, Will and Grace stopped speaking for 10 years and only started speaking again when their kids met in college? Series co-creator Max Mutchnick admitted to Entertainment Weekly, that in order for the series to properly work the events of the finale had to go. “We spent most of our time trying to figure out what would be the way to make the show the best version of itself coming back after 11 years. That finale really caused us a lot of grief.” He continued, “We frankly did not want to see them being either good parents or bad parents. We wanted them to be Will and Grace. So basically, Will and Grace will both be how we remembered them best – single and childless. We couldn’t be happier.”
Will & Grace returns to NBC September 28 at 9 p.m. and we can’t wait.
