Will & Grace returns to Comedy Central
Going back to September 1998, when Will & Grace first premiered, fans feel a strong sense of nostalgia. Upon the return of the series, we see the dynamic characters on screen again after eleven long years.
The show explores whether friendships between gay men and straight women are problematic or splendid. For many, the show illustrates how gay men are just as lovable as other television heros.
Will & Grace Cast: Then and Now
The purpose of the show remains unchanged, and the revived show still provides a remission from the political concerns in America today.
The focus of the show, however, is more geared towards representing its audience better. Eric McCormack, who plays the role of Will, says that "Now the message is 'we are us,' and we represent a lot of people in the country, gay and straight, and we're not apologizing for who we are."
Lori Eskowitz-Carter remains as the show's costume designer, even after eleven years. Old fams of Will & Grace have always raved about Karen Walker and her outgoing fashion sense. We are sure to see Karen styled in couture brands and maintaining her bold style.
The show does not follow up from the season finale 11 years ago. This is rationalized by executive producer and creator Max Mutchnick who says, “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.”
