NBC Is Bringing Back Will & Grace!!
An old favorite is making a return to television!!
NBC is bringing by the Emmy-winning series Will & Grace for a ninth season, reuniting the original cast who look almost the same way they did when the show’s last season aired in 2006. According to Deadline.com:
After months of complex and difficult negotiations, the network has closed a deal for a new 10-episode installment of the hit series, which aired from 1998-2006 as one of the last tentpoles of NBC’s once venerable Must-See TV comedy lineup.
The new, ninth season of Will & Grace stems from the surprise election-themed reunion mini-episode released on Sept. 26. Done without NBC’s involvement, it immediately triggered talk of a possible real reunion.
Will & Grace is an American sitcom created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan about the relationship between best friends Will Truman (Eric McCormack), a gay lawyer, and Grace Adler (Debra Messing), a straight interior designer. It was broadcast on NBC from September 21, 1998 to May 18, 2006, for a total of eight seasons. During its original run, Will & Grace was one of the most successful television series with gay principal characters. The show also stars Will & Grace sidekicks Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, an alcoholic socialite, and Sean Hayes as Jack McFarland, a flamboyantly gay actor.
