Cape Town – When Will & Grace return to TV screens later this year it will be like they never left. 

Channel24 reported earlier that the popular sitcom will be back for a 12 episode run. 

The reboot will not follow up on the events that transpired in the 2006 finale with both Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) in relationships with kids.

When they return they will both still be single, childless and living together in their apartment in New York with Jack (Sean Hayes) across the hall from them and Karen (Megan Mullally) in her mansion.

The cast and crew are featured in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly and are spilling some tea on what to expect from the new season. 

Executive producer/creator Max Mutchnick told the magazine that the finale caused a lot of grief. 

He said: "You write a finale because a show is over. You never think that it’s coming back again.”

According to insiders there will also be a few cameo returns from past love interests.

While we wait to see how the story unfolds bask in these cool pictures of the awesome four.
