“Will & Grace” season 9 is currently on a break, but when the show returns, fans can expect to meet Karen’s (Megan Mullally) other employees.

As fans may know, the midseason finale saw the death of Rosario, Karen’s long-time maid. Rosario was played by Shelley Morrison, but the actress’ decision to retire from the business made it impossible for her character to return. While the episode was utterly moving, fans can look forward to meeting Karen’s cook and pastry chef.

According to TVLine, one of the episodes in season 9B will introduce the two employees who both happen to be very hot. Will (Eric McCormack) and Karen will find themselves watching the two employees’ confrontations with the security camera in her kitchen.

Mullally revealed in an After Party digital exclusive that she thinks her character will need to have someone by her side now that Rosario is gone. It remains to be seen, though, who will be able to fill that hole in her heart.

“I think that Karen is really strong, but I do think that there needs to be some kind of, like, someone’s going to have to fill that void,” Mullally said.

The actress also added that there may be a chance that her real-life husband Nick Offerman could appear in future episodes. Fans may recall Offerman as the hunky plumber, though Mullally revealed that he could play a different character this time around.

“I’m hoping we’ll see him,” she said. “He may not return as the hunky plumber, but he might return as some other hunky character.”

As for the special holiday episode ahead, creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan teased that they are very pleased with how it turned out. “We, who are inclined to be very critical of the work, thoroughly enjoyed it. It really is a fun one,” Kohan previewed. “It’s gonna be really good.”

“The holiday episode is unbelievable,” Mutchnick added. As a final hint for the fans, Mutchnick further said, “We just talked about Cher. That’s all I’m gonna say.”

Fans know that Cher previously guest starred in the original run of “Will & Grace,” and another appearance from the Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer will surely be exciting.
