The second life of "Will and Grace" is getting extended by another year.
The revival of the '90s sitcom has been a hit for NBC. Season 9, which has two episodes left, has posted ratings that make it the network's No. 1 comedy and the No. 2 comedy overall on television in the key demo (tied with "Modern Family" and behind "Big Bang Theory").
NBC already gave an early order for Season 10 (before the revival even began airing) and now it's demonstrated even more faith in the revival by ordering Season 11. Both those seasons will run 18 episodes each, five more than the current one.
Stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes will all return, of course.
The success of "Will & Grace" has triggered a wave of revivals and revivals. ABC will air a new season of "Roseanne" starting at the end of March and CBS is bringing back "Murphy Brown" next season. The CW is making a pilot for a reboot of "Roswell," there are reimaginings of "Party of Five" and "Mad About You" in the works, and a "Buffy" revival is still very much in the mix.
