According to THR, the network is working on bringing back stars Eric McCormack (Will), Debra Messing (Grace), Megan Mullally (Karen) and Sean Hayes (Jack) for a 10-episode limited run. Nothing has yet been finalized with the cast or creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, and there is still a good chance that the project could fall through.
NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Will & Grace — which centered on gay lawyer Will and his interior designer BFF, Grace — signed off in May 2006 after eight seasons. But it has returned to the zeitgeist with gusto lately, with the cast reprising their roles for a popular September video about the upcoming presidential election.
McCormack, Mullally and Hayes also participated in NBC’s Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows special in February. When asked where Karen would be today, Mullally quipped, “She’d be married to Donald Trump.”
Reboots and series based on existing properties have been more popular than ever lately, as networks look for ways to stand out in an increasingly oversaturated market. On October 27, Us Weekly reported that the Disney Channel is developing a spinoff series for That’s So Raven that would return Raven-Symoné to her signature role of Raven Baxter. Meanwhile, Gilmore Girls fans are waiting with bated breath for Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival, launching next month.
