Your first look at Will & Grace in 2017 is here. In the new promo above, which comes complete with clips from the original beloved eight-season run, get a sneak peek at Will (Eric McCormack), Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen (Megan Mullally) in 2017.

"OK, he's a man, but he's aged into a lesbian," Will says to Grace during a game of Heads Up.

"Newt Gingrich!" she shouts.

"The 16-time Emmy winner is back," the voiceover says. "And they're picking up right where they left off."

There are also shots of Grace and Karen on a plane with earbuds involved. And then there's Grindr. Yes, Jack is using Grindr, the gay hookup app.

"Grindr has gotten so skanky. I feel like I can get finger Herpes just from scrolling," Jack says. "Oh! There's a gay guy within ten feet from—"

It's Will.

What are Will, Grace, Jack and Karen doing back together again in this batch of 16 episodes? Forget the series finale that jumped into the future and saw the famous friends, well, not really famous friends anymore.

"I kind of think the very…that was more or less a fantasy, it was a projection, that episode, into the future," co-creator David Kohan told press at the 2017 TCA summer press tour.

Kohan said the writers looked at what they missed, which was the core of the show. "And I think what we missed was the dynamic between the four of them more than we missed the possibility of what their lives would be like as parents," he said.

"We never would've gone in that direction if we thought we weren't ending the show," co-creator Max Mutchnick said.

NBC has already renewed the Will & Grace revival for another go of 13 episodes.
