Everyone remembers NBC’s Will & Grace, right? It was the prototypical sitcom of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. And like most everything from pop culture 10-20 years ago, it’s making a comeback.
OK, this show didn’t really interest me since I was too young for it when it first aired, but it is still very popular and was very successful. There was an election related webisode that came out in September, which fueled speculation a comeback was in the offing, and actor Leslie Jordan has confirmed the show will be making a comeback via ET.
“It’s back,” Jordan said, informing the show’s diehards that, no, this isn’t a drill. According to the veteran actor, a revival really is happening.
When the interviewer suggested the show was “perhaps” coming back, Jordan interjected to say, “not perhaps… absolutely.” The 61-year-old thespian then revealed that NBC has ordered 10 episodes of the iconic sitcom, which he said will begin shooting in July.
“All I can say is that there is a very good chance that that might happen,” Mullally told PrideSource. “It’s not happening right this second. I mean, we’re not rehearsing or anything like that. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize.”
She added the show will still riff on politics like it always has, and noted since we’ll be knee-deep into a Trump Presidency by July, “it couldn’t be a better time” for the show to return. And Mullally says her character might well be Trump’s Secretary of State too.
So if Will & Grace gets your blood pumping and adrenaline flowing, get ready for the fall when the show will make its return to NBC airwaves.
