When it was announced earlier this year that Will & Grace was returning for a new season, it looked like it would probably be a one-off event. However, while they’ve only just started shooting the new episodes, a second new Will & Grace season featuring 13-more episodes has already been commissioned, while an additional four episode of the upcoming season have been added, bringing the total to 16.
It’s certainly a big turnaround from a year ago, where when talk first emerged of a revival follow a special mini online election episode, it appeared it was NBC who were the holdups. At the time they seemed unsure whether there was any life in the franchise. Instead they’ve found it’s already one of the most anticipated shows of the year.
Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally are all returning – and it apparently took them all less than a minute to agree to reunite for a new season – and they are also now onboard for another season too. Will & Grace will be back on TV in the US on September 28th, and will hopefully be seen in other countries shortly afterwards.
