If you haven't heard, Will & Grace is coming back to Must-See TV Thursdays! Except, technically, it's no longer Must-See TV... it's just regular NBC. But the show is coming back, and that's all that matters right now.

It's been 11 long years since Will and Grace last graced (see what I did there?) our television sets. A lot has changed since then, but one thing has stayed the same — Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen are still friends and just as hilarious as ever.

Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally are all returning for the revival, as well as many of the guest stars from the original show. If you recall, the series finale back in 2006 ended 20 years in the future, with Will and Grace both married off to their former love interests, Vince (Bobby Cannavale) and Leo (Harry Connick, Jr.). And they each had a kid.

So, how will things pick back up? Well, they'll pretend like none of that ever happened.

"When the decision was made to bring the series back, we were like, well, we left them with kids, right?" Co-creator David Kohan told EW. "And if they have children, then it has to be about them being parents, 'cause presumably it would be a priority in their lives. And if it wasn't a priority in their lives, then they're still parents, they're just bad parents, right? We frankly did not want to see them being either good parents or bad parents. We wanted them to be Will and Grace."

Will and Grace will be roommates again, Jack will still be living across the hall, and Karen will still be living in her mansion drinking her days away. Will will still be a corporate lawyer, Grace will still be an interior designer, and Jack will have upgraded his trademark "Just Jack" to teaching acting students his own form of "Jackting."

"They've done well with their lives," co-creator Max Mutchnick told EW. "They've always been successful at life and living. It's relationships that Will and Grace have always had the trouble with, and they still do."

NBC has already picked up season 2 of the show. Will and Grace returns September 28th at 9 p.m, which is the exact same time slot as it once was. So, basically, it's going to feel like the '90s all over again.
