Fans of the hit show Will & Grace, we have great news: the ’90s and ’00s show will return for a 10 episode season!
The news was confirmed by Leslie Jordan (who played Beverly Leslie on the show), who told San Diego radio station KPBS.
This comes after Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally returned for an election special, where Will Truman and Grace Adler tried to convince Jack McFarland to vote for Hillary Trump. Karen Walker, on the other hand, is a Donald Trump supporter.
The election special was well-received, with more than six million views.
Will & Grace aired from 1998 to 2006, and followed Will Truman (McCormack), a masculine lawyer living with his interior designer best friend Grace Adler (Messing). Together, they navigated life in New York and examined their career, friendships, and relationships. They are accompanied by Jack McFarland (Hayes), a flamboyant gay man who constantly changes partners and jobs, and Karen Walker, 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 & 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.”
