More than a decade after the series finale aired, the lovably dysfunctional foursome that used to reign on NBC's Thursday nights are returning to TV. The Will & Grace revival premieres Thursday, Sept. 28, back on its home network. And you can expect that Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack will offer just as much social commentary as they do laughs. (remember all of those political jokes?). The original series was only recently made available to stream online for the first time, on Hulu and NBC. So if your memories of your favorite Karen insults or Grace fumbles are a little dull, never fear. Bustle has compiled a list of the six most important episodes Will & Grace episodes for you to catch up on all of the core four characters’ shenanigans (and without actually having to marathon all eight seasons) before the revival kicks off.
Whether you’ve been a fan of the hit comedy since the first episode in 1998, or all the revival hype and the 10-minute reunion special about the 2016 presidential election peaked your interest, these six episodes are essential for getting you back into that Will & Grace state of mind. It feels nice to be reacquainted with old friends — especially ones as hilarious as these.
