Actor says Will and Grace revival is on

Former Will & Grace actor Leslie Jordan says the sitcom is returning for 10 new episodes.

Jordan, who played Beverly Leslie, said “It’s back,” in a radio interview. “[NBC] has ordered 10 [episodes]. It’ll be for next season, so they’ll go in in July.”

Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes recently reunited in a pitch perfect video ahead of the US election.

Not long after Debra Messing said that she would “never say never” about a revival.

“Now there are platforms where you can do six or 10 episodes. I don’t believe we would ever come back to network [TV] again,” she said. “I think that the logistics of all of our lives — there would just be way too many things to hammer out. But for something shorter-lived and maybe having the limitations of being on network TV lifted may give us a fun, fresh opportunity because we could be really, really naughty!”

So far NBC is yet to comment.

  1. I think a 9th season would be great, especially if they can bring back people like Shelley Morrisey (Rosario) who appeared briefly in the special last year, Blythe Danner (Marilyn, Will’s mum) and Leslie Jordan (Beverly Leslie). Even Molly Shannon (Val) could do an episode.

  2. Is this a bit like the ‘what’s in it for me’ that came from the X File revival negotiations with both the main actors. The irony is that most of those involved in the original X Files needed publicity for their slowing careers, is this also the case for this rumoured Will & Grace which was previously past it’s used by date when it ended anyway.

  3. I’ll believe it when I hear it from one of the main four. Debra Messing already indicated that if they did go again, they’d probably want to go with streaming rather than a network so they could do a more risqué version.
