If you were a “Will & Grace” fan, you better find yourself a seat.
“Will & Grace” was more than just a hilarious sitcom for millions of Americans. It was a cultural touchstone that helped to shed light on the LGBTQIA community and encourage inclusiveness.
Well, fans, do we have news for you! “Will and Grace” is reportedly coming back for another brand-new season!
Yep, you read that right. Will, Grace, Jack, Karen… the gang is most likely coming back for at least one more season of laughs and awws.
First, they tantalized our taste-buds with a short 10-minunte episode that was meant to encourage viewers to get out and vote:
And, now, Leslie Jordan (who played Karen’s frenemy Beverley Leslie) says that the show is most definitely coming back for one more season.
Beverly, of course, is one of the show’s most beloved characters and is responsible for making us LOL more times than we can count. He was always there to take Karen down a peg and make her a little more human and vulnerable (Jordan won an Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006 for his role as Beverley).
Jordan says that NBC has most definitely ordered a new 10-episode season and that it will “absolutely” be coming back. He says that the regular cast has all signed on and that he (as a featured player) expects that he will be getting a phone call shortly.
Um, Farrah Fawcett Majors, how awesome is that news!
While 2016 felt like this for many of us:
It now seems like 2017 is promising us something a little better, or at least promising us hilarious, warm-hearted and quirky comedy that will make us feel like the 2000s never ended.
So, keep your eye out for this revival! Jordan says that 10 episodes have been ordered and that it will begin filming in July.
2017 is looking good already!
