One of NBC’s most popular comedies may be poised for a revival. Will & Grace was one of the networks “Must See TV” stalwarts, and the election-themed reunion may of fanned the flames for its return. Per The Hollywood Reporter:
September’s Will & Grace election-themed reunion apparently served as a big wake-up call for NBC.
The network is in talks to reboot the Emmy-winning comedy starring Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The goal, sources say, is to do a 10-episode limited series revival.
No deals are in place with the four key stars or with creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the latter of whom had the idea to do the September election-themed TV revival. Universal Television, which produced the original series, would have to secure the stars as well as the creators. It’s unclear if NBC would air the revival or if the network could get outbid for what is sure to be a pricey series by a streaming giant like deep-pocketed Netflix.
NBC and Universal Television declined comment. Insiders caution it’s extremely early in the talks, and it’s unclear if a Will & Grace revival could actually happen.
If this means I get to hear “Just Jack!” again, I’m all in.
