Will & Grace ready for finale
The kids are packing up the apartment for a final hurrah, on Stan this Friday.
The last ever episode of Will & Grace will screen this week in the US and be available at 3pm AEST Friday on Stan.
The sitcom ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006 and was rebooted in 2017, having a 246-episode run over two decades.
In the season finale episode, “It’s Time,” with the apartment packed up, Will (Eric McCormack) is determined to not reminisce about his life in the city or his ex, McCoy (guest star Matt Bomer). Grace (Debra Messing), on the verge of giving birth, keeps having false alarms of going into labour. At the behest of Stan, Karen (Megan Mullally) goes to the top of the Statue of Liberty to get closure with her ex-husband. Jack’s (Sean Hayes) dream of taking a bow on a Broadway stage becomes a very real possibility. Minnie Driver and Brian Jordan Alvarez also guest star.
Eric McCormack said, “We’ve done certain episodes that while they’re very much about right now, they will withstand the text of time. I have a greater appreciation of how great a job this is, so in some ways it’s harder to say goodbye this time.”
Sean Hayes said, “All I feel is gratitude to the writers, to my peers, to the fans.”
Debra Messing said, “To be able to make people laugh and think and feel, that’s the trifecta. This is a family with a history. No question there’s going to be tears on that last night.”
Megan Mullally added, “To have a job doing a show that people liked so much, that’s amazing.”
