Will & Grace airs its winter finale tonight. When it returns back in early 2018, we have something special to look forward to. Variety reports the NBC sitcom has booked Molly Shannon for a guest spot. She’ll reprise her role of Val Bassett.
Val first popped up as a replacement best friend for Will when Grace was too busy. In a later episode, she stalked Jack after seeing his one-man show, “Just Jack.” Throughout the series run, Shannon appeared in five episodes.
Shannon first expressed interest in reprising her memorable role while appearing on Watch What Happens Live this summer. “I’m still really close to Megan [Mullally] and Sean [Hayes], but I haven’t been asked yet,” she told Andy Cohen. She added, that she would “love to a part of it.”
Excited that Shannon is coming back? Check out a couple of her memorable W&G scenes below, along with her appearance on WWHL.
