How will NBC pull off the ‘Will & Grace’ revival?
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back. This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary — all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs.”
“Will & Grace” fans are beyond excited about the revival news. However, everyone is wondering where the revival will pick up. As many viewers will remember, the series ended with Will and Grace meeting again after a falling out kept them apart for many, many years. In the finale, the two former friends cross paths again while they are moving their children into college. Eventually, their children get married and Will and Grace are family as they were always meant to be. Could the series take place after their children meet at college and their rekindle their friendship, or will the revival simply ignore the flash forward scenes from the original finale?
