“Will & Grace” comes back to TV today, so it’s the perfect time to catch up with Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack in the first eight seasons. Unfortunately, the show hasn’t been available for streaming — that is, until now.
If you have plans this weekend, it’s time to cancel, honey: All 194 original episodes are now available for streaming on Hulu!
You can also watch “Will & Grace” on the NBC app or on-demand through satellite, cable and telco pay TV providers (though we’re guessing Hulu will be the more popular choice).
“There’s no question that ’Will & Grace’ has resonated with audiences since the series made its broadcast premiere. To be able to bring such an iconic show into the streaming universe for the first time ever is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up,” Joel Stillerman, chief content offficer at Hulu said in a press release. “This landmark deal will allow fans to re-watch their favorite moments ahead of the series premiere, as well as bring ‘Will & Grace’ and its cast of characters to a whole new audience.”
As an added bonus, new episodes of the show will be added to Hulu one day after they air. You truly know what our binge-watching hearts need, Hulu.

The original eight seasons ran from 1998 to 2006 and the show was nominated for 83 Emmy Awards, winning 16. “Will & Grace” is credited as being largely responsible for bringing LGBTQ topics to the forefront of the entertainment industry (along with “Ellen,” of course) and was the highest-rated sitcom in the adults 18-49 demo for four straight years from 2001 to 2005.
All four of the original cast members are back for 16 new episodes, which, by the way, now includes a second season with 13 additional episodes. Both original and new episodes are written and produced by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.
“As we gear up for the launch of the upcoming season premiere, I can’t think of a better way to reintroduce ‘Will & Grace’ to the cultural zeitgeist than by giving audiences the opportunity to watch this historic and hilarious series wherever and whenever they want,” NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a press release. “With its witty comebacks, pop-culture references and social commentary, ‘Will & Grace’ is one of the most binge-able comedies in television history, and I am certain fans both old and new will jump on this opportunity to devour it.”
The gang returns Thursdays at 9 p.m. on NBC (or Fridays on Hulu)!
