Will & Grace revived for season 9? Per Deadline, talks are under way to resurrect the NBC sitcom for a full season beyond the recent election special, with Netflix and other streaming companies among the prime candidates:
Sources caution that there are no deals in place and there are a lot of hurdles that make mounting a Will & Grace return a daunting task, but at least there is a will to pursue it. Producing studio Universal TV needs to secure stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes as well as creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. I hear the idea is to do a one-off 10-episode installment. NBC and Uni TV had no comment.
While NBC, the series’ original network, is a possibility, I hear a streaming player, like Netflix, is considered more likely. While I’d heard Netflix’s name mentioned as a potential partner, I hear there haven’t been formal conversations with the Internet network, which has successfully rebooted several beloved series including Arrested Development, Full House and Gilmore Girls, which is returning with four movies.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the revival status of Will & Grace Season 9…
