Will & Grace is on its way back to TV screens and thanks to the show’s creator, Max Mutchnick, we’re already getting a glimpse of what’s to come.
On Friday the creator and executive produce tweeted a photo of a page of the script with the caption “W&G Writing Room on Hiatus. Stopped by the office to pick up my wig. #wigandgrace.”
The photographed page shows a conversation between Jack (Sean Hayes) and Will (Eric McCormack) and comes from an episode titled “The Wedding.” It appears that Will is in need of a date for a wedding and Jack takes it upon himself to imagine a scenario where Will would want him to fill the spot/he uses it as an opportunity to ask to borrow some cash. It reads:
“JACK: I see where this going. You ask me to be your date, you drink too much, I’m disgusted, you feel uncomfortable and end up giving me money at the end of the night. I guess what I’m saying is, I need to borrow a grand. We can talk about it later when you’re plastered.
WILL: Jack, you read my mind. I guess I’ll go with Plan B. No date.
KAREN ENTERS WITH A MONKEY.”
Sadly that’s where the page ends, so we’ll have to wait until the show returns in the fall to find out why Karen (Megan Mullally) is carrying a monkey around.
Back in January, NBC confirmed the news that it had ordered a limited revival of the series that will reunite stars McCormack, Hayes, Mullally and Debra Messing during the 2017-2018 TV season (the initial 10-episode order later increased to 12). Along with Mutchnick, original series executive producer and co-creator David Kohan will be back as well as James Burrows, who directed every episode of the initial run.
Will & Grace will air Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
