In news of something we didn’t know we wanted or needed, but are so excited about – NBC announced today that Will and Grace is returning.
That’s right – Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen will all be returning to your TV.
Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally have all signed on. Yes, we know it’s not Friends, but strangely Will and Grace gets us just as excited.
It will be a short season. The cast has signed on for a 10-episode limited run during the 2017-18 season.
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “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.”
Original series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will act as showrunners and executive producers. James Burrows, who directed every episode of the show during its initial eight-year run, is returning.
Could today get any better?
