This also marks a return to network sitcoms for Schwimmer who has been largely focused on drama since the end of the hugely popular and Emmy-winning NBC comedy Friends, on which he played Ross for 10 seasons.

"Friends" and the original "Will & Grace" were teammates on NBC's powerhouse "Must See TV" Thursday night comedy lineup in the 1990s through 2002.

While the former sitcom star has been busy behind the scenes as a director and producer - and most recently appeared in the critically acclaimed The People vs O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story - it's been 14 years since he's hung out on broadcast TV.

Schwimmer is the latest high-profile name to join Will & Grace that returned to the small screen last season.

Alec Baldwin and Mary McCormack will be returning for the second season of the revival and Chelsea Handler has just been filming a guest role, sharing a selfie with the cast from the set.

Asked by Deadline earlier this year what's in store for Will & Grace next season, co-creator Max Mutchnick said, "We're trying to open up the series this year".

Will & Grace will return October 4 for a 18-episode second season and already has been renewed for an 18-episode third (11th overall).
