Eleven years ago, with love in our hearts and tears in our eyes, we waved goodbye to Will & Grace after the eight series sitcom came to an end. Ending the series finale with a flash forward sequence of Will and Grace – who hadn’t spoken for years – reunited as they pack their grown children off to college.

In 2018, embarking on a new 16 episode season with all the original crew from director James Burrows to the same writing team, Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) with their unconventional friendships with Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen (Megan Mullally) have returned to our TV screens as if they had never left us. The series finale explained as just a dream, both Will and Grace are roommates yet again after the breakdown of their relationships.

Will & Grace Season 9

Sticking to its fabulous format and hitting the present day social issues from cutting digs of the Trump administration to educating the millennial gay generation who have it “way too easy” thanks to the efforts of Will and Jack’s generation. Oh, and it wouldn’t be classic Will and Grace if there weren’t a few problematic relationships upon the way and a touching farewell to Karen’s poor put-upon maid Rosario.

Whilst the cast were doing the rounds in London, We were lucky enough to spend some time with both Eric McCormack and Megan Mullally for a chat about returning to the show after all these years. Check out our interviews below.
