    NBC Press Release:

    10 New Episodes of the Groundbreaking 16-Time Emmy Award-Winning Comedy Series to Air in 2017-18 Season

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif — Jan. 18, 2017 — “Honey … What is this? What’s going on? What’s happening?”

    NBC is officially bringing back television’s favorite foursome with a 10-episode limited run of “Will & Grace” during the 2017-18 season.

    Stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally — each of whom received at least one Emmy Award for their respective performances throughout the series — will be back, and original series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will act as showrunners and executive producers. Legendary director James Burrows, who directed every episode of the show during its initial eight-year run, is on board to direct and executive produce.

    “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.”

    Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment, added: “We started talking with Mutchnick and Kohan about producing new episodes right after they shot the secret reunion show back in September, and the fact that all four of the original stars were excited about getting back into production is a testament to the joyful experience they had doing nearly 200 episodes for eight seasons. Few things cut through the clutter these days, especially in comedy, and ‘Will and Grace’ is one of the best.”

    Said Mutchnick: “Dave and I are absolutely thrilled about the opportunity to write what Will, Grace, Jack and Karen are thinking about in 2017.”

    Debuting in 1998, the show’s popularity climbed steadily, ultimately becoming the highest-rated sitcom in the adults 18-49 demo from 2001-05, and garnering an audience of more than 18 million for its series finale in 2006. In addition to taking its place in the cultural zeitgeist as a critic and fan favorite, “Will & Grace” was nominated for 83 Emmy Awards, winning 16 of them including Outstanding Comedy Series.
    Universal Television will produce and distribute the new episodes.

  6. So pleased that we have a formal announcement and that we can get properly excited. Just as long as it's better than the final couple of seasons (minus the live episodes) we will be fine.

  8. Oh sweet lord the comments on Sean's Facebook are a TRUE MESS.

  9. Did they pick the least funny and entertaining bits for this trailer to keep hopes down?
  10. So. Guest stars.

    My guess is Nick Offerman will be reprising his plumber for at least one episode. I also see Blythe Danner and Molly Shannon making appearances.

    It's hard to see which modern actors or singers would make good guest stars though. I have a really hard time seeing where the show belongs in pop culture in 2017.

  12. Ariana Grande, Neil Patrick Harris, RuPaul. Britney could return as Amber Louise, closeted Republican lesbian.
  13. I am interested to see where they manage to take it. I have already expressed my concerns about it but will not bring the joy down as for fans, this is a triumph!
  14. I'm can't believe it's coming back.

    They HAVE to snatch Gaga for a guest role.

    I noticed this. Who are these Trump supporters who are superfans of the show? Also, as one of the commenters responded, the show has always been somewhat political.

    Did anyone seriously think that either Will or Grace would not have a strong view on the presidential election? Even by Grace's usual standards of cluelessness it would be a stretch to imagine she wouldn't have been a Hillary supporter.
  16. I would love to see Molly Shannon and Blythe Danner involved. I don't want too many cameos though I always think it ruins reboots.

    So excited for this and I hope they continue their non pc ways. I've never taken offensive to anything because it's always in good fun.

  17. SCREAMING at Madonna walking around the set thinking the characters were named after the actors.
