After months of rumors, and that recent YouTube presidential election reunion, NBC has confirmed that sitcom “Will & Grace” is being revived. The network has placed an order for 10 new episodes to air at some point next season. Originally running from 1998-2006, 185 episodes of “Will & Grace” were telecast, with each of the principal stars – Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally – all winning Emmy awards and all returning to the reboot.
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt in a prepared statement. “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.”
Also returning are the show’s creators and original executive produces, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.
