Will & Grace Is Returning to NBC Next Season for 10 Episodes

Fox isn’t the only broadcast network that’s bringing back its biggest recent hits.

NBC is reviving its hit sitcom Will & Grace for a 10-episode limited run next season. NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke made the announcement at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

All four of the show’s stars—Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally—will return, along with show creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan and director James Burrows, who directed every episode of the sitcom’s run.

NBC has been pursuing a revival ever since the stars and creators reunited last fall for a hilarious pitch to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton.

“We’re thrilled to have the show back. We’ve been quietly talking to Max and David since the reunion episode went viral in September to see if it was possible to align everyone’s schedules to do these episodes,” Salke told reporters. “And we’re so happy it all worked out. We’ve got the cast, producers, Jimmy Burrows, everyone’s on board and excited to get back in production.”

The show aired from 1998 to 2006, and was the highest-rated sitcom in the 18-49 demo from 2001 to 2005. Its series finale drew an audience of 18 million.
