It’s confirmed: Will & Grace will be back for a ninth season after it ended in 2006, and it will premiere on September 28. To further hype the landmark show’s return, NBC released a promo video of the show’s cast, composed of Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullaly, and Sean Hayes.

News of a revival was announced when the foursome returned for an election special, where Will Truman and Grace Adler tried to convince Jack McFarland to vote for Hillary Trump. Karen Walker, on the other hand, is a Donald Trump supporter.
The election special was well-received, with more than seven million views.

This was followed by a musical trailer:
Will & Grace aired from 1998 to 2006, and followed Will Truman (McCormack), a gay lawyer living with his interior designer best friend Grace Adler (Messing). Together, they navigated life in New York and examined their career, friendships, and relationships. They are accompanied by Jack McFarland (Hayes), a flamboyant gay man who constantly changes partners and jobs, and Karen Walker, a multi-millionaire socialite who does secretarial work for Adler.
The show has been critically acclaimed, with 83 Emmy nominations under its belt. Will & Grace is one of three sitcoms where all leads received an Emmy Award. The show’s cultural impact is also undeniable, with then US Vice President Joe Biden saying that the show “probably did more to educate the American public” on LGBT issues “than almost anything anybody has ever done so far.”
The revival will have 12 episodes.
