‘Will & Grace’ in Talks to Return to NBC 2016-10-28 01-04-45

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.

I am STOKED.  A full show reboot would surely fail, but to come back for a check in sounds like just enough to wet my whistle and then get out before it fizzles into annoying.

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.

Fingers crossed!!
