Will & Grace Reboot Greenlit!

Filed under: Hit Television — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 03:00

GREAT news for us Will & Grace lovers! According to Entertainment News Authority Dark Horizons, the hit show will be returning to the airwaves in a limited 10-episode run this year! Garth Franklin Reports:

Actor Leslie Jordan has revealed on a radio interview with KPBS that NBC has officially revived the comedy series “Will and Grace” for a ten episode limited series. Jordan said in the interview: “It’s back. [NBC] has ordered 10 [episodes]. It’ll be for next season, so they’ll go in in July.” Jordan won an Emmy for his role as Beverly Leslie on the series. The network has reportedly been eyeing the revival since October when the four key stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes stepped back into their former characters in an election-themed video that went viral. Talk of a series sprang up right away but deal with the stars and series creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick had to be worked out. NBC declined comment.

The original series ran for eight seasons and scored 16 Emmy wins out of 83 nominations.

The show stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Raul Castillo, and Steve D’Assis. Take a look at an extend trailer for the show, featuring some interviews among the cast, below. “Looking” premieres Sunday January 19th at 10:30pm.
