‘Will & Grace’ Officially Returns to NBC
Lose your minds! Will & Grace is officially coming back. NBC announced the Debra Messing and Eric McCormack series will return with new episodes, along with Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally.
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” NBC’s Robert Greenblatt said in a statement at the 2017 TCAs. “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 season.
The Will & Grace cast reunited for a 2016 presidential election PSA, and it was such a huge thing, the powers that be started discussing bringing them back for a short-run, much like they’ve done with Gilmore Girls and Arrested Development.
“We started talking with Mutchnick and Kohan about producing new episodes right after they shot the secret reunion show back in September, and the fact that all four of the original stars were excited about getting back into production is a testament to the joyful experience they had doing nearly 200 episodes for eight seasons,” Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “Few things cut through the clutter these days, especially in comedy, and Will and Grace is one of the best.”
