Will & Grace is an American television sitcom that aired for eight seasons on NBC from 1998 to 2006, and resumed on September 28, 2017.[1][2] The show earned sixteen Emmy Awards, and 83 nominations. Will & Grace is set in New York City and focuses on Will Truman, a gay lawyer, and his best friend Grace Adler, a straight Jewish woman who runs her own interior design firm. Also featured are their friends Karen Walker, a rich socialite; Jack McFarland, a struggling gay actor/singer/dancer who also has had brief careers as a choreographer, cater-waiter and nurse; and Rosario Salazar, Karen's maid with whom she has a love-hate relationship.

Will & Grace is the most successful series portraying gay principal characters, despite initial criticism for its particular portrayal of gay people, as it went on to become a staple of NBC's Must See TV Thursday night lineup, where it was ensconced in the Nielsen Top 20 for half of its network run. Every single episode of the series was directed by James Burrows; one of the show's executive producers. In January 2017, NBC announced that the series would return for a 12-episode season during the 2017–18 season.[3] All four principal cast members (Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally) have already confirmed their return to the revival.[4] An additional four episodes were ordered on August 3, 2017, for a total of 16, and a tenth season was also ordered.[5]

As of December 5, 2017, 201 episodes of Will & Grace have aired.

Webisode[edit]

No. Title Original air date
1 "#VoteHoney" September 26, 2016 (2016-09-26)

Will and Grace discuss how upset they are about Donald J. Trump being an actual candidate for the POTUS. Karen walks in, voicing her support for Trump, followed by Jack, who doesn't think he's going to vote because he is undecided. Grace tries to convince him to vote for Hillary Clinton, while Karen tries to convince him to vote for Trump. Shelley Morrison makes a cameo as Rosario.


The cast reunited to film a 10-minute scene related to the President of the United States 2016 election where the characters talk about the importance of voting and who they think should win the election. It was released on September 26, 2016.[57] After the release of the webisode, it was rumored the show would get a revival, which was later confirmed by NBC in January 2017.
