At long last we have can watch the reboot of Will & Grace here on these shores. While the show has been airing on Channel 5 in the UK since January and kicked off in America last September, most of us in Ireland have yet to see it.

Good news though, RTÉ2 will air the new rebooted series, kicking off on February 12th at 9pm.

The twelve episode revival will pick up with Will (Eric McCormack), Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes), and Karen (Megan Mullally) 11 years since we last saw them.

The original series ran for eight seasons and won sixteen Emmys during its win, including one each for the four main cast. A second season of the rebooted series has already been commissioned.

Upon announcing the show's revival NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said: "We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back. This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary - all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture - is coming back where it belongs."
