NBC is moving forward with the Will & Grace reboot. Rejoice all!
Now THIS is some good news to offset all that crappy inauguration crap!
It’s been reported that NBC has officially given the go to continue the beloved bestie comedy Will & Grace. It’s been rumored for months that the gang would be returning to television after they produced a 10-minute scene about the 2016 election. More fuel was added to the flame when Leslie Jordan unofficially confirmed the reunion, but then star Debra Messing denied anything was set in stone.
NBC released the following statement about the 10-episode revival:
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back. 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.”
The presidential episode felt very much in the same vein as the original show, so naysayers (Megan) shouldn’t be too worried. The show originally ran from 1998-2006, and it’s one of the only shows to earn Emmys for each of its leads. The series totaled 83 Emmy nominations over its career run, winning 16 trophies.
