It was on, then it was off and now it’s on again.
Will And Grace is coming back to our screens it has been officially confirmed. Will, Grace, Karen and Jack will all return for a ten episode series of the hit comedy which was first aired in 1998. The show ran for 194 episodes in eight seasons before being taken off air in 2006.
Ten episodes of the hit 90’s comedy Will And Grace will return to the small screen after NBC green-lit the production. The announcement came after one of the show’s stars, Leslie Jordan, jumped the gun and told fans that the show was going ahead. The news forced Debra Messing, who plays Grace in the show, to deny the report and say the show was still just in talks.
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. “This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary — all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs.”
When the show first broadcast it faced criticism after it failed to star an openly gay actor.
