Looks like Will & Grace addicts have only one week to stream the 194 original episodes before the revival airs on Sept. 28—challenge accepted. No matter the timing, fans should rejoice over the new deal between NBC and Hulu to bring the iconic, Emmy-winning series to streaming services for the first time ever. Starting today, the show is accessible via the NBC app, Hulu and pay-TV providers.
NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement:
“As we gear up for the launch of the upcoming season premiere, I can’t think of a better way to reintroduce Will & Grace to the cultural zeitgeist than by giving audiences the opportunity to watch this historic and hilarious series wherever and whenever they want. With its witty comebacks, pop-culture references and social commentary, ‘Will & Grace’ is one of the most binge-able comedies in television history, and I am certain fans both old and new will jump on this opportunity to devour it.”
The new season of Will & Grace will bring back the phenomenal duo Debra Messing and Eric McCormack, along with Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, backed by the original crew of co-creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, and director James Burrows. It will run for 16 episodes, and has already been picked up for an additional season of 13 episodes to follow. They will be available to stream shortly after each episode’s broadcast airing.
