If you’ve ever watched an episode of Will & Grace the upcoming NBC reboot may confuse you.
You see, the creators of the show decided to pretend the finale never happened. That means that instead of Will Truman and Grace Adler each being married with kids, they’ll be single, childless, and living together in their same apartment.
Executive producer and co-creator Max Mutchnick told Entertainment Weekly, “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. You write a finale because a show is over. You never think that it’s coming back again.”
Harry Connick Jr., who played Grace’s eventual husband, will make an appearance in the reboot, and Jack and Karen will also back, with Jack living across the hall from Will and Grace and Karen still in her mansion.
There will be 12 new episodes returning to NBC beginning September 28th.
