Variety confirmed today that a Will & Grace revival is in talks at NBC.
Sources say that discussion about this reboot, which is in its early stages, began last month after the cast reunited to create an election-themed video.
Will & Grace cast members Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes convened to make an almost 10-minute episode online before the start of the Sept. 26 presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Messing and some of the cast alluded to this reunion with tweets, posting photos from the set. The video and the teaser sparked had fans going wild.
Created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, Will & Grace ran on NBC from 1998 to 2006 and received 16 Emmy awards. The show was groundbreaking as it was one of the first broadcast television shows to feature gay series regulars. The show centered around two friends and roommates, Will (McCormack), a gay man, and Grace (Messing), a straight woman, and their friends Jack (Hayes) and Karen (Mullally).
If the revival is materialized, Universal Television will be producing; the original series was produced by NBC Studios.
