Over a decade after its original run ended, Will and Grace is coming back.

The popular NBC sitcom was one of the first to have gay characters in lead roles and won a raft of Emmy awards during an eight-year, eight-season run from 1998 to 2006.

The cast reunited for a 10-minute special episode last September in an effort to express their disapproval for Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy, but now it seems as if it’s coming back for an extended 10-episode run in the near future.

There has been no confirmation from NBC about a Will and Grace return, but Leslie Jordan, who played one of the show’s main supporting characters, Beverly Leslie, seemed pretty sure it’s going to happen.

“It’s back,” Jordan said in a recent radio interview with KPBS.

“Here’s the way it works: (NBC) has ordered 10 (episodes). It’ll be for next season, so (the cast will) go in in July. And then they’ll add the guest cast. I’ll get a phone call.”
