The first season of NBC's Will & Gracerevival might not have even run its course yet, and already the network is renewing the second-life series for a third season.
NBC announced that it has ordered a third season of the Will & Grace revival (which would be the entire series' 11th), which will feature 13 to 18 more episodes of the show to run in 2019.
NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said of the decision, "As far as I'm concerned, we can't get enough of Will & Grace and 23 more episodes is music to my ears. We're eternally grateful that Debra [Messing], Eric [McCormack), Sean [Hayes] and Megan [Mullally] feel the same way and wanted to keep this good thing going. I'm overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience, and my hat is off to the unrivaled writing team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, as well as the brilliant directing of Jimmy Burrows, for consistently delivering one of the best shows on television."
Certainly, the series seems to have successfully tapped back into what made it so special in the first place in both on-screen atmosphere and audience ratings.
Will & Grace airs Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC.
