UPDATE: (4/6/2017) — The news just keeps getting better for Will & Grace fans!
According to EW, NBC is upping the number of new episodes from 10 to 12.
After an election video featuring the cast members went viral last year, fans clamored for a revival, and in January of this year, NBC confirmed the news.
All the main cast members will be reprising their roles and the original show’s creators and director/producer will also return, so there should be continuity of the plot from the original series.
We can’t wait to see what the gang gets up to in 2017!
UPDATE: (1/19/2017) — It’s finally here! NBC confirmed that Will & Grace will return for 10 episodes during the 2017-2018 TV season. More good news: Debra Messing, Eric McCormick, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally will all be back.
After the good news went public, Messing tweeted, “The gang is getting back together!”
There has been much speculation that the sitcom would return after the four stars filmed an election-themed video last year. Now that NBC has confirmed the revival, we can all wait eagerly for the first episode.
UPDATE: (11/1/2016 — )According to Deadline writer Nellie Andreeva, Will & Grace may return as a 10-episode series. Andreeva’s sources caution that “there are no deals in place,” but if the TV show were to return, it would likely be streamed on Netflix or Hulu, in which NBC, the channel that originally aired the show, has a 30 percent stake.
Last month Will & Grace cast members recorded an election-themed video released on YouTube. The video sparked intense interest from fans about a possible revival for the show.
This month, Will & Grace fans are one step closer to getting what they’ve asked for.
Variety has confirmed that NBC is currently in preliminary talks about resurrecting the show, perhaps as a direct result of the immensely successful campaign video. The winner of 16 Primetime Emmys, Will & Grace ran from 1998 to 2006.
The show focused on two friends and roommates, Will, a gay man, played by Eric McCormack, and Grace, played by Debra Messing. Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes also starred as friends of the title characters.
