Is a ‘Will & Grace’ revival series in the works at NBC?

NBCIt may sound crazy, but that doesn’t make it any less true: We could be seeing so much more of “Will & Grace” moving forward into the future.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, NBC is in talks with creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick alongside the show’s four main cast members (Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes) about doing some sort of shortened batch of new episodes of what was once one of their biggest series of all time. In some ways, we do get that the move makes a little bit of sense. After all, many of these actors saw their roles on other shows end, and while they all may still be busy, they could arrange their schedules for this to happen.

Also, there was a little bit more in the way of renewed buzz about something like this that stemmed from a recent campaign video that the actors all recently worked on through election season. The creation of this led to there being even more buzz about bringing the show back, and given the low ratings for most of NBC’s comedies these days, it makes some sense that they would try to capitalize on nostalgia.

For those of you who feel somewhat like NBC is running out of original ideas and should do something to correct this, consider this argument for a moment: Bringing this show back allows it to serve as a lead-in to another comedy, and potentially give it more exposure and ratings. There are benefits in using an established hit to support new properties, and if everyone involved is interested in making this happen, why would you want to sidestep it?
