Will & Grace has extended once again to the UK, with Channel 5 picking up rights to the NBC revival comedy, Deadline reports:
Will & Grace are heading back to the UK after Viacom-owned broadcaster Channel 5 picked up the rebooted comedy. I hear that the commercial broadcaster will air the Debra Messing-fronted ninth series, which launched on NBC earlier this fall, in January, in between episodes of Celebrity Big Brother.
Will & Grace is already safe from the cancellation reaper, having been renewed for Season 10 (Season 2 of the revival). However, the lucrative deal certainly wont hurt the show’s Season 11 renewal quest.
Stay tuned as we continually monitor the status of Will & Grace Season 11 (Season 3)…
