It Is Official: Will & Grace Returning To Network TV, NBC Has Ordered 10 New Episodes!
It’s happening, folks. You remember that Will & Grace presidential election PSA last year? Well, it’s obvious now that the video was released to measure how much excitement there still was for the show. They purposely made it seem like they were bringing the show back to see how people would react.
It was a clever trick, and it worked. The amount of attention the show has been getting online opened up conversations between the cast and NBC.
And it didn’t take long for them to reach an agreement. Will & Grace will be making a return to network television, and the entire cast will be returning: Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack and Megan Mullally.
NBC’S Robert Greenblatt released the statement you see below…
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back. This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary— all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs.”
The 10-episode season will air during the 2017-2018 TV season. The original show aired from 1998 to 2006, so it’s been 11 years since new episodes were produced.
The original executive producers Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will act as showrunners for this revival, and they could not be more excited.
“Dave and I are absolutely thrilled about the opportunity to write what Will, Grace, Jack and Karen are thinking about in 2017.”
One thing is certain, you know there is going to be lots of Donald Trump jokes.
