Friends and Will & Grace were two of the most loved shows in the late nineties / early noughties.

We have spent countless hours watching reruns of both (often right after each other). 

And now news has emerged that David Schwimmer is joining the Will & Grace cast for season two of the reboot!!!

David will be a recurring character on the show, playing Grace’s (Debra Messing) love interest!

(Not going to lie – we hope this character is better than Ross…)

NBC made the announcement. 


Last month Debra was teasing Entertainment Tonight with the news that Grace gets a boyfriend. 

“Things expand this season,” Messing told ET.

“You know, we really get into each character’s private lives. Grace gets a boyfriend.

“Boom. That’s right.

“And I’m not allowed to tell you who, but you’re gonna be so excited.”


David joins Alec Baldwin, Chelsea Handler and Mary McCormack as recurring characters for the second season of the reboot, alongside the formidable four – Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally. 

The season begins to air on Thursday October 4 at 9pm in the US – so we’re expecting that similarly to last season it will drop Friday afternoons on Stan in Australia!
