Things must be going really well with the Will & Grace revival. The comedy initially received a 10-episode limited installment, but NBC has already expanded its order. The Emmy-winning comedy will now air 12 glorious new episodes. I can’t wait. Too bad it wasn’t on Netflix because I’d binge-watch that sh*t in a day. Plus, it would be much racier too.
Rumors of the revival first began after Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes reunited to film a pro-Hillary Clinton video prior to the presidential election. During its eight-season run, the comedy won 16 Primetime Emmys, including the honor for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2000. In addition to all the accolades, W&G is credited with paving the way for LGBT characters on TV by featuring the first openly gay lead characters on a primetime network series.
Creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan return to executive produce, as well as James Burrows, who directed the entire eight-season run of the original series.
NBC Universal recently released a promo video for their upcoming upfronts presentation featuring the cast back together. Check it out below.
