We May Get Another Season of Will & Grace

Word on the street is a shortened revival is being discussed.

Tim Surette

Remember how excited we all got over that Will & Grace quasi-reunion last month when the cast got together for a mini episode in support of Hillary Clinton and urged citizens to get out there and vote? Well that may have just been the beginning.

The cast and producers are in early discussions to bring back the Emmy-winning comedy for one more shortened season of 10 episodes, Deadline reports. But before you get too excited, it's important to stress that these are very early talks and nothing is solid.

Reviving the series would mean locking down the original cast -- Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, none of whom have a regular gig at the moment -- in addition to creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. But due to previously agreed on distribution rights -- sorry to get too business-y here -- the studios behind the series may not be too keen on giving it another go.

While Will & Grace's original network NBC is a possible destination for the revival, Netflix is a more likely option since Will & Grace, which ran from 1998 to 2006 before the boom of digital TV,doesn't have a streaming deal in place. That means Netflix -- which already has had huge success with the relaunch of Full House -- could shoot for a package deal of hosting the original run of the series in addition to the reboot.

But again, this is all very early chatter.
