Sneak Pre­view

In Touch (USA) - - Intouch -

Watch­ing the re­vival of Will & Grace is like catch­ing up with old friends who have ma­tured — but not too much! Pre­tend­ing the flash-for­ward finale of the orig­i­nal se­ries never hap­pened, the pre­miere finds Will (Eric Mccor­mack) and Grace ( De­bra Mess­ing) liv­ing to­gether again as sin­gle room­mates af­ter Will split from Vince ( Bobby Can­navale) and Grace split from Leo ( Harry Con­nick Jr.). “It’s peo­ple in midlife say­ing, ‘ Hey, wait. I’ve tried, but I still haven’t found any­thing bet­ter than this,’” says Eric. Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen ( Me­gan Mul­lally) are still mak­ing mis­chief (now mod­ern­ized) — we’ll see Jack on Grindr and hear Karen brag of be­ing pals with Me­la­nia Trump. “[Karen]’s the same, but worse,” Me­gan says. “And I can’t tell you how fun that is.” Another thing that hasn’t changed? The cast’s comic chem­istry. “It’s a gift that we get to [ por­tray] th­ese char­ac­ters again,” says Sean. Adds Me­gan, “The episodes we shot are just as good, if not bet­ter, than any­thing we have done.” THURS. 9/ 28, 9 P. M., NBC

Will & Grace orig­i­nally ran from 1998 to 2006. ”Lit­er­ally, a fam­ily come has back to­gether and we’re do­ing just Round Two,” says De­bra.
