Py­jama party as Will & Grace wakes from its 11-year slum­ber

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

The stars of Amer­i­can sit­com Will & Grace plan a sleep­over tonight to watch the US pre­miere of their small-screen comeback — more than a decade after the orig­i­nal show ended.

De­bra Mess­ing (Grace), Eric McCor­mack (Will), Me­gan Mul­lally (Karen) and Sean Hayes (Jack) will put on their PJs to en­joy the re­turn.

De­bra ex­plained: “We have to have a view­ing party. I bet it’s go­ing to be at Sean’s house. It will be pop­corn and in our py­ja­mas.”

She re­vealed that it didn’t feel like it has been 11 years since the show was last on TV, adding: “It was after we shot the first episode live in front of the au­di­ence, that’s when it hit me.

“We all just got very teary-eyed. It was re­ally an in­cred­i­ble mo­ment.”

Show pro­duc­ers scrapped the orig­i­nal se­ries fi­nale, which went 20 years into the fu­ture to imag­ine Will and Grace each hav­ing chil­dren.

The new episodes will be a re­turn to the old days plac­ing the fo­cus on the four friends, with De­bra adding: “We’re back to where it all be­gan and where the magic sort of lives.”

No UK screen­ing deal has been agreed.

WE’RE BACK ON TRACK US sit­com buddies Jack, Karen, Will and Grace
