Over a decade after Friends ended, David Schwimmer is returning to sitcom-land with a role in Will & Grace as Grace's new love interest.

Former Friends star David Schwimmer is returning to sitcom land with a role in the next season of Will & Grace, which returns in the autumn.

David, who played Ross Geller on Friends for its entire ten season run (1994 to 2004) has been cast as a new romantic interest for unlucky-in-love interior designer Grace Adler (played by Debra Messing). Let’s hope he can work his magic, since Grace has a reputation for turning some of her past boyfriends gay and her married life ended in divorce!

Filming is currently underway on the new run of Will & Grace, which made a successful return to US TV last year after originally ending in 2006.

We are officially back in production for @nbcwillandgrace Season 2 (a.k.a, Season 10). Tonight, we tape our first episode of the season. #WillAndGrace

Will and Grace is shown on Channel 5 in the UK
