    "Will & Grace" Is Coming Back To NBC

    The network announced a 10-episode revival season.

    PASADENA, California β€” Will & Grace is officially coming back to NBC.

    The Emmy-winning series will return for a 10-episode revival season, the network announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Wednesday. β€œWe’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. β€œThis groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary β€” all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture β€” is coming back where it belongs.”

    Original stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally will return, as will the show's creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. "Dave and I are absolutely thrilled about the opportunity to write what Will, Grace, Jack and Karen are thinking about in 2017," Mutchnick said in a statement. James Burrows, who directed every episode of Will & Grace, is also back on board as director and executive producer.

    Will & Grace reboot rumors surfaced late last year when the team reunited to film "Oh Honey," a video designed to get people to vote in the 2016 election. Its popularity also piqued NBC's interest. β€œWe started talking with Mutchnick and Kohan about producing new episodes right after they shot the secret reunion show back in September," Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "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."

    The new episodes of Will & Grace are slated to air during the 2017–2018 season and the cast is pretty excited.
