The ‘Will & Grace’ Revival Now Has A Musical Trailer
Can’t keep up with the numerous television shows getting the revival treatment? Yeah, us either…there are that many being shopped around. Well, allow us to remind you of one more that’s coming back to the small screen this upcoming fall: Will & Grace.
In the clip shared during NBC’s Upfront presentation on Monday, the gang’s all here and busting into song. In the five-minute trailer/musical number, both Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) are seen exiting the office of the president of NBC, Bob Greenblatt, after discussing details of the comeback. Will is all onboard, Grace not so much (though we know already know how this one ends). When Will senses Grace’s reluctance (“I’m just not feeling it, I’ve done it,” she says. We feel you.), Will brings her back to the original set of the show to spark some nostalgia (“How many fake shows did we not watch on that prop TV?” he asks).
There, the duo is joined by Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes), which prompts the quartet to sing a rendition of “As If We Never Said Goodbye” from Sunset Boulevard. “I don’t know why I’m frightened, I know my way around here,” Grace sings. “The brooding guy, the drunk who’s bi, the tightly wound queen.” Longtime viewers will be relieved to find out that not much has changed, including Karen’s hatred toward Grace’s outfits and her and Jack’s cattiness. In fact, throughout the number, they make sure to assure viewers that it will, indeed, be as if we never said goodbye to their characters and the show nearly 11 years ago.
Allow the crew to try and convince you, above. The limited 12-episode show will return to NBC on Thursdays this fall.
