"Will & Grace" is the latest TV show to get a reboot.

  • TV

The hit sitcom — which aired during the late '90s to mid-2000's — will see a resurgence on the small screen, star Leslie Jordan revealed this week.

 

"Will & Grace" aired on NBC and follows the lives of Will, a gay lawyer and his longtime college friend, Grace. The series starred Sean Hayes, Megan Mullally, Eric McCormack and Debra Messing.

 

Jordan, who portrayed Beverly Leslie on the beloved show, told San Diego radio station KPBS that NBC has ordered 10 new episodes of the show, which will begin filming in July.

 

"It's back," he said.

 

After the interviewer noted that a return was “perhaps” happening, Jordan interjected to say, “"not perhaps… absolutely.”

 

Earlier this month, Mullally had also hinted the show would return.

 

The series' cast members have reunited a few times before — including once in a video in support of Hillary Clinton.

Karen Walker Gets The Lead

Popular Will and Grace character Karen Walker is to return in a new new spin-off production.

Multi-award winning actress Megan Mullally confirmed that she has been given the go-ahead from Will and Grace creators and studio executives to stage Karen The Musical.

Mullally made the role of Grace's acidic assistant popular over the course of eight years on the sitcom about a gay man and his female roommate. Though a spin-off series featuring Karen and Jack was mooted, fans have been left disappointed since the show ended in 2006.

"It's being produced by Fox Theatricals," Mullally told the UK publication Pink Paper. "It hasn't been written yet but it is going to happen.

"I'm going to do it wherever I want. I'd like to do it as a limited run in Los Angeles for six weeks, then a limited run in New York and maybe come over to London.

"We have some really funny ideas. It's going to be crazy and outrageous. In the theatre we can do whatever we want. We have everybody's approval. I'm so excited! Karen is returning!"

But Mullally is keeping tight-lipped about a possible appearance from her former partner in crime, Jack.

"There will be one other person from the show [in Karen The Musical], but I don't want to reveal who it is yet..."

Mullally stars in a new big-screen version of Fame, which opens in Australia later this month.
