The highly anticipated Will and Grace reboot could be just around the corner as cast members seem to feed rumors about it.
“It’s back. Here’s the way it works: [NBC] has ordered 10 [episodes]. It’ll be for next season, so they’ll go in in July. And then they’ll add the guest cast. I’ll get a phone call,” Jordan said.
Fans of the series are familiar with the character of Beverly Leslie, frenemy of Mullally’s Karen Walker, played by Leslie Jordan. TV Line reported the comedian revealed details about the Will and Grace reboot during a radio interview with radio station KPBS.
Interestingly, Mullally posted a tweet seemingly pertaining to the possibility of a reboot. Indeed, it is giving their fans reason to rejoice for the New Year. The actress shared quite a telling photo via social media. It features herself and the rest of the Will and Grace actors.

NBC has yet to confirm rumors about the Will and Grace reboot. However, Mullally’s tweet seems to tell a different tale. To some extent, her caption could very well answer the question burning in everyone’s minds. She is not the only one who is open to the idea of the series coming back to television.
Earlier reports revealed Eric McCormack and Debra Messing are also interested. Although Grace Adler seems to have a naughtier version in mind for a Will and Grace reboot. Hence, Messing’s wish for it to happen on Netflix or on Amazon.
When the Will and Grace reboot talks started
The clamor for its reboot sprung ever since the brief Will and Grace reunion show last September according to Entertainment Weekly. Lead stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes came together for a 10-minute video for the upcoming elections at the time. The quartet voiced their support for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. It also meant to encourage people to come out and vote.
A month later, rumors came out about initial talks between NBC, the series creators, David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, and the stars about the Will and Grace reboot.
