It’s the final season of the rebooted version of sitcom Will & Grace – and the show is ending with a bang.
Besties interior decorator Grace (Debra Messing) and her well-put-together gay lawyer roommate Will (Eric McCormack) are thrown for a loop this season: she’s pregnant and doesn’t know who the father is following her holiday in Italy. As for Will, he’s also expecting a baby via surrogate despite his romance with his boyfriend McCoy (Matt Bomer) being on shaky ground.
The only thing that remains constant on the comedy is Will and Grace’s outrageously over-the-top friends, Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes), barging into their apartment at odd hours of the day to either offer moral support or throw major shade to the roommates. Other than that, Will and Grace are nervous about the uncertainties that come with being parents – at least they have each other to lean on. “We told the story better, this time around,” says Eric. “Will and Grace are both having kids at their age [late 40s], in two different ways. Just as we appreciated the reboot, they also appreciate a shot at parenthood,” he adds.
Since it’s Will and Grace’s last time onscreen, the show pays homage to a range of movies, plays and TV shows. From the ’50s comedy I Love Lucy, to 2008 blockbuster Mamma Mia! – it’s all there. The gang will be re-enacting some of the best dance routines they’ve ever done. Look out for these on-air inspired sequences:
