NBC announced the revival season back in January. James Burrows, who directed every episode of the show's eight-year original run, will return to direct all 12 episodes.
"We're thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back," NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said in January. "This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary — all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs."
The beloved sitcom ran from 1998 to 2006, picking up 16 Emmy Awards and 83 nominations along the way. "Will & Grace" will premiere Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
