We’re guessing Karen Walker is going to be anything but speechless when she catches wind of the latest
TVLine has learned exclusively that Minnie Driver — who made six appearances as Karen’s acid-tongued nemesis-turned-stepdaughter Lorraine Finster during the NBC sitcom’s original eight-season run — will reprise her role in the Peacock net’s forthcoming 16-episode revival. Driver is slated to guest-star in one episode, production of which begins this week.

Lorraine was introduced in Season 5 as the mistress of Karen’s never-seen hubby Stanley Walker. After divorcing Stanley, Karen exacted revenge on Lorraine by bedding — and ultimately marrying — her father Lyle Finster (John Clease).
Driver joins a revival guest cast that also includes fellow returning vet Harry Connick Jr. (as Grace’s significant other Leo) and Tony winner Ben Platt.

revival has already been picked up for another 13-episodes, well ahead of its Thursday, Sept. 28 launch date. As previously reported, the series’ original, forward-flashing ending — in which Will and Grace lost touch as they started new families of their own with Vince (played by Bobby Cannavale) and Leo, respectively — will be completely ignored.
