"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."

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," said Joel Stillerman, Chief Content Officer, Hulu. "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."
