Is Will & Grace On Netflix?

will-and-grace-revival-poster

It's the classic sitcom that made a surprise comeback in 2017, but can fans find Will & Grace on Netflix? The 1990s was something of a golden age for sitcoms, including the likes of Frasier, Seinfeld and many more that have since become classics. Will & Grace joined that ranking in 1998, which revolves around Will, a gay corporate lawyer, and his best friend/roommate Grace. While they might have been the main characters, their friends Jack and Karen were just as important to the success of the show.

Will & Grace was defined by the comic chemistry between stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally (Parks And Recreation). The show was also praised for its witty writing and its handling of LGBTQ issues, and it came to an end in 2006. The actors reunited for a one-off Will & Grace sketch in 2016 which proved so popular that NBC greenlit a whole new series, which debuted in 2017. The revival has been another hit with critics and is set to come to an end with the upcoming third season - though that will technically be the eleventh season of the show overall.

The rise of streaming platforms has seen viewers rediscovering beloved sitcoms like Friends or The Office, both of which are available to view on Netflix USA. The same can't be said for Will & Grace, with neither the original series nor the revival currently available on the platform. The first eight seasons can be found on Hulu or NBC, however, while the revival is available on NBC. Alternatively, they can be rented or purchased through iTunes and Amazon.

It's rare for a revival series to recapture what made the original show work. While there have been great examples like Twin Peaks: The Return or Samurai Jack, they often end in disappointment like Arrested Development or The X-Files. The new series of Will & Grace managed to bring both laughs and heart, such as the episode dealing with the passing of fan-favorite character Rosario, who was Karen's verbal sparring partner/best friend.

While Will & Grace is set to end once again with season 11, there's nothing to say it won't return in some form once again. There was also talk of Jack and Karen earning their own spinoff series shortly after the original series ended - only to be canceled due to the response to Friends spinoff Joey - so that's a concept NBC could revisit in the future.
