Honey, this is major: Jane Lynch and Andrew Rannells are guest starring together on the upcoming Will & Grace revival. They join an already stacked roster of cool celebrity guests on the much-anticipated reboot, including Ben Platt, Harry Connick, Jr., Minnie Driver and Bobby Cannavale. 

Rannells is fresh off the final season of Girls, where he played Hannah's friend and roommate Elijah. Lynch, meanwhile, just picked up a Creative Arts Emmy for her role on her web series, Dropping the Soap.

The show is already looking to be a queer spectacle for the ages: Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally are all reprising their infamous roles for a 16-episode first season and 13-episode second season. 

Ahead of the series' return, NBC will air an hour-long special, "The Paley Center Salutes the Best of Will & Grace," featuring highlights from the show's past seasons and new interviews with the cast and creators. The program will air September 19 at 10 PM EST.

Will & Grace returns to NBC Thursday, September 28 at 9 PM EST.
