Forget Friends, it’s all about the Will and Grace reunion

After all of our hearts we’re broken this week with the Friends reunion that is no more, Hollywood have found the perfect way to cheer everyone up.

A Will and Grace reunion.

Forget Friends, it’s all about the Will and Grace reunion

The cast of legendary sitcom are getting back together for a TV special in honor of writer James Burrows (similar to the Friends ‘reunion’).

Stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack have both confirmed the news on Twitter:

McCormack went on to reveal that Sean Hayes, who played Jack McFarland, is producing the NBC special.

The show - which ran for eight seasons - featured Debra Messing as Grace Adler, alongside her roommate Eric McCormack as Willl Truman and of course the hilarious Megan Mullally as Karen Walker.

According to Hollywood Life, Hayes said: "We’ve confirmed all casts from all shows. On January 24 we tape, and it airs February 21. It’s the reunion of all reunion shows. It’s going to be unlike anything everyone’s ever seen".

All together now - “Just Jack”.
