The "Will & Grace" revival just keeps getting bigger.
First, NBC planned for 10 episodes, then it was 12, and now the network has ordered four more episodes, plus an additional season. Bob Greenblatt, NBC's chairman, made the announcement Thursday at a TCA event, revealing that the newly ordered season -- the show's 10th overall -- will consist of 13 episodes.
The revival will kick off Season 9's 16 episodes this fall, and the first table read was yesterday, according to Deadline. The fact that NBC was willing to renew the show for Season 10 this early in the game shows execs are very confident in "Will & Grace." And there is good reason for that. Stars Eric McCormack (Will), Debra Messing (Grace), Megan Mullally (Karen), and Sean Hayes (Jack) are all returning, and together, they helped the show win 16 Emmys during its original eight-season run. On top of that, their 2016 reunion -- a 10-minute election-themed episode -- drew more than 7.5 million views on YouTube.
It'll be great to see the gang back together. In the meantime, NBC has dropped a new promo to get us extra excited.
"Will & Grace" returns Sept. 28.
