Former Will & Grace star Sean Hayes is set to reunite with the show's director James Burrows on hit sitcom The Millers.

The comedian has been tapped as a series regular for the upcoming second season of the comedy, which stars Beau Bridges, Margo Martindale and Arrested Development's Will Arnett.

The casting reunites him with Tv legend Burrows, who directs The Millers, and also worked with Hayes on all eight seasons of Will & Grace.

Hayes was last seen in his own sitcom, Sean Saves the World, but the programme was cancelled earlier this year (14) after just 15 episodes.
