Critic Reviews for Will & Grace Season 9

It's a great reminder of how funny, and how good, this show once was - and, surprisingly, still can be.

The urgency and purpose of the original is gone, but there are four ace comedians batting around piercing one-liners, along with more "Designing Women" jokes than you ever bargained for.

The cast proves itself to be as energetic, opinionated, and hysterical as ever.

What was once the groundbreaking decision just to center on gay characters with full lives no longer makes the show feel fresh; if anything, it faces the challenge of overcoming its own bad habits.

Will and Grace are Sisyphean sitcom figures, rolling the rock for romantic love, only to wake up at the end of every story arc back at the bottom of the mountain, making pop culture jokes with their besties instead.

Will & Grace has always excelled just as much at physical comedy as the snarky verbal barbs. And it's one more good reason to welcome this beloved sitcom back into our lives.

If you were a fan of the show original Will & Grace then you will find plenty to love about this revival. The cast is still phenomenal and the writing is still sharp.

Jul 15, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

"Will and Grace" are a lot like your parents. You loved them and they were there for you in the late 90s and early 00s. However, no one needs them to pretend to be hip.

From the opening moments, sitting down to watch the rebooted series is like wriggling into an old pair of sweatpants.

Aug 29, 2018 | Full Review…

As you'd expect, the political commentary is on point, savage and funny as hell.

Aug 29, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Will and Grace and Jack and Karen are sitcom escapism, complete with laugh track. It's comforting, bland tapioca pudding. I hate myself a little for saying this, but it's nostalgia done absolutely right -- and it's really not that bad.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

My main problem with this reincarnation, as with the original show, is that the zippy one-liners are clever without being really funny.

Audience Reviews for Will & Grace: Season 9

  • Sep 05, 2019
    Too left wing political, not funny anymore.
  • Sep 02, 2019
    not my cup of tea, not funny, why so many seasons? I'd suggest this show just goes away
  • Feb 22, 2019
    2/23/2019 This was probably my most favourite series during my college days and was ecstatic that they were doing a comeback after almost two decades. The season started out slow, with a lot of political innuendos. Gradually, it got funnier and funnier as if the script was the same as the show of the quartet I used to really love. They all have their own funny contributions to the series, as their guest stars. Watch out for a cameo role by J.Lo.

    Not as good as it used to be,

    no one likes this show
  • May 21, 2018
    Used to be funny. Now just politics and liberal propoganda cleverly disguised as a comedy show - its not.
  • May 19, 2018
    same old jokes. yawn.
  • May 13, 2018
    These people are too goofy to be funny.
  • May 12, 2018
    I don't even know why they brought this show back.
