The “Will & Grace” revival is due in less than a month, but are we ever going to see some new footage? A couple of fresh jokes, maybe, to get their former audience excited? Actually, yes.
NBC released a first look at the classic sitcom’s new season this week, and while it’s mostly some of the same marketing material we’ve been seeing since the four got together for a post-Trump short, we do get a few new one-liners.
In one, Grace (Debra Messing) and Karen (Megan Mullally) are riding the train when Grace gets disturbed by the amount of jamming Karen seems to be doing on her headphones. When she asks what she’s listening to, Karen says wryly, “Fox News.”
In another, Grace and Will (Eric McCormack) are playing Heads Up! when Will tosses her the clue, “He’s a man who aged into a lesbian.” Grace shoots rapid-fired answers back at him until she finally nails it, saying, “Newt Gingrich.”
There’s still not a ton here, but what it does show is that “Will & Grace” will be the same as it was when the show went off the air in 2006. No, seriously. The same. Literally.
“Will and Grace are living together, Jack’s across the hall, Karen’s still rich. We just get back to business,” McCormack says in a soundbite.
Will & Grace returns Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. on NBC. Watch the sneak peek above.
