'Will & Grace' Revival Already Renewed for Season 2!
By Jennifer Drysdale
Will & Grace gets a second second season!
The NBC reboot has been picked up for a 13-episode second season, the network announced at Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday. The first season of the reboot, which reunites the original cast -- Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally -- has also been upped from 12 episodes to 16.
Bob Greenblatt, Chairman off NBC Entertainment played coy about the possibility of even more Will & Grace earlier in the day, revealing that more episodes would be "the greatest outcome."
"I hope there is more to come and that would be the greatest outcome of this whole thing. We did the first table read yesterday of the first episode," he said prior to the announcement. "Aside from some reading glasses that appeared -- they look exactly the same as they did 10 years ago except there’s some hair coloring … it’s the same show."
