So the original cast of Will and Grace have reunited and a British broadcaster has picked up the rights to show it!
Back in the noughties, Will & Grace was the show that broke the mold for the gay community. Now, ten years since the last episode was filmed a new series has been produced and fans are eagerly awaiting its broadcast in the UK.
The original series ran from 1998 to 2006 – over 8 series.
In January 2017 it was announced that a new series would be made – with the backing of the entire original cast – all except one cast member who wouldn’t be returning.
Sixteen episodes, expanded from an original order of 10, were made by the producers.
When will Will & Grace be shown in the UK?
British broadcaster, Channel 5, has now picked up the rights to broadcast the show and UK audiences will be able to watch in January 2018.
Channel 4 was the original broadcaster for the show in the 00’s and although it remains to be seen if Channel 4 will pick up the show this time around. We will update this when there is confirmation on a UK broadcaster.
Has Will & Grace been extended to further series?
Yes, Will and Grace have been picked up for a 10th season.
