Will & Grace: More Episodes, Early Renewal!

at .

The clear winner of the NBC portion of the TCA Press Tour is Will & Grace.

Not only has the revival slowly risen from a modest ten episode return season to one of 16 episodes (who expects more?), but they've already been renewed.

That's not a surprise at all, is it?

Will & Grace Series Shot

From what we've seen so far, series stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes have been letting it all go to their heads.

And why shouldn't they?

It's not very often four castmates enjoyed their previous roles to much they wanted to jump back in as if no time has passed and even managed to look as if NO TIME HAS PASSED.

And really, who needs reruns when they're quite willing to give us new material.

It's one of the best gifts fans could be given.

W&G Ribbon Cutting

On the lot yesterday, there was ribbon cutting and an honest to goodness ticker tape situation as happiness rained down around them.

It's one of those times when the prospect of making television is bringing everyone involved nothing but joy.

And just in case you thought the cast were the only ones in on the secret, David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are comging back as the showrunners, as is exec producer James Burrows, who directed every single episode of the original series.

There is a lot of love for this one going around, don't you think?


We've seen reminds of breasts we've loved so much, and yesterday, there was no mansplaining needed when Eric McCormack and Sean Hayes moved in for a kiss during the ribbon cutting festivities!


And if you're wondering why you can't just pop over to the nearest streaming service and watch the past episode with ease, well, we got a bit of an answer for that.

"We are working on it but it's super complex. There are a lot of parts to that," Mutchnick said. "We are working on it and we hope that soon we're going to be making show available in that form because it should be."

How are you feeling about this return now? 

Is there another show you'd rather see return in its place?

Are you as excited as the cast and BTS group?

Will & Grace Quotes

I'm sorry, I guess some people age like an anchorman and others like a meth head mother of nine.


Really, Grace? Peek a boo sleeves. Aren’t you begging someone to just peek and then boo?
