Australian fans of rebooted sitcom Will & Grace will get to see the new series the same day as the US on streaming service Stan.

A new season of the comedy series starring Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, is being made after 11 years off the air.

The series originally ran for eight-seasons from 1998-2006.

After a popular 10-minute segment aired in 2016 to encourage Americans to vote in the US election, the series was brought back by US network NBC and filming on the new season has begun.

Stan struck a deal with NBCUniversal to premiere the new 16-episode series on September 29, the same day as the US.

NBC has already renewed the rebooted series for a second season.
