NBC’s ‘Will and Grace’ Revival Extended With Additional Episodes
More often than not, hot-ticket network revivals are usually one-and-done, but Will & Grace fans are at least getting some additional bang for their buck. NBC’s revival of Will, Grace, Jack, Karen and the rest is getting an extension, adding a few more episodes to its run.
According to Deadline, NBC has officially opted to take its Will & Grace revival from the initial ten-episode order, to a more network-friendly twelve. According to the report, the revived series “quickly has emerged as one NBC’s top assets for next season,” and will get prominent Upfront placement in the weeks to come.
As previously announced, stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are all aboard, with creators Max Mutchnik and David Kohan joining series director James Burrows. The idea came about after the viral success of September’s “Vote Honey” video, which saw the assembled cast reuniting for a ten-minute “episode” about Jack (Hayes)’s indecision in the 2016 election.
In the meantime, stay tuned for more on Will & Grace’s return, and watch the original videos below.
