Will & Grace, which is back for its second season after getting the revival treatment last year, has a number of guest stars you can look forward to seeing.

He and Grace (Debra Messing) hit it off in the season premiere.

NBC has previously announced that Matt Bomer (Suits) will play a smooth-talking TV anchor who also dates Will.

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon is also set to appear this season, along with W&G fan-favorites Minnie Driver (Speechless) as Lorraine Finster and Alec Baldwin, who plays Karen’s (Megan Mullally) lover, Malcolm.
