Rather than inspire Will & Grace fanfiction entailing Grace Adler as a production assistant on Harry Connick Jr.’s daytime talk show, the creators of errybody’s favorite gay/st8 sitcom revival are pretending needy husbands and snot-nosed brats children never happened!
EW reports Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Susan Sarandon’s BFF Debra Messing) will be single, childless, and gay-gay-gaying it up in their New York apartment. OK, fine, they can hag it up, too. Just a little. Show creator Max Mutchnick gave their reasoning:
“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.”
In case you forgot (SPOILER ALERT), Will and Grace kinda just lost touch and had kids, who found each other on move-in day at college. Memaw Grace and Pepaw Will reconnected in the dorms, and, sadly, it wasn’t over Bud Light and dining hall chicken fingers (How else are you supposed to kiss and make up in college?!). Even Jack and Karen will get a do-over at life. Sean Hayes’s Jack will live across the hall from W&G and Megan Mullally’s Karen will still be channeling Leona Helmsley in her mansion with Rosario.
I really hope this means we can forget that salty homo leprechaun Beverly Leslie’s windswept end, too. Nothing got “I’m totally straight and only have a teetering tower of Men’s Health under my bed for the articles, Mom!” self laughing than that Southern swamp possum sashaying into a scene and showing that group of 3s how a 10 could act!
