Fans of Will & Grace, we have great news for you: The revival of the hit TV show hasn’t been released yet, but NBC has already greenlit another season!
Will & Grace aired from 1998 to 2006, and followed Will Truman (Eric McCormack), a gay lawyer living with his interior designer best friend Grace Adler (Debra Messing). Together, they navigated life in New York and examined their career, friendships, and relationships. They are accompanied by Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes), a flamboyant gay man who constantly changes partners and jobs, and Karen Walker (Megan Mullaly), a multi-millionaire socialite who does secretarial work for Adler.
The show has been critically acclaimed, winning 16 of the 83 Emmy nominations it has received. Will and Grace is one of three sitcoms where all leads received an Emmy Award. The show’s cultural impact is also undeniable, with then US Vice President Joe Biden saying that the show “probably did more to educate the American public” on LGBT issues “than almost anything anybody has ever done so far.”
The next season will be expanded to have 16 episodes from its original plan of 12, while its next season will have 13 episodes. There’s no word when it will air.
