A “Will & Grace” revival is coming. This was confirmed by Leslie Jordan, the actress who portrayed Beverly Leslie on the original NBC comedy. Reports claim that the show is set to return to its home network with a 10-episode short season.

ET reported that Jordan was quick to correct an interviewer when the latter said the show “perhaps” might be back. The actress exclaimed, “Not perhaps. Absolutely.” So far, this has been the first absolute confirmation that a “Will & Grace” revival is indeed happening.

Even Megan Mullally teased fans saying there is a good chance that a “Will & Grace” revival might happen. However, Mullally was able to make it clear that they were not yet rehearsing. The actress played the wealthy, alcoholic socialite Karen Walker in the original series.

Fans are left guessing about how a 10-episode arc would look like, although Mullally had some ideas. She mentioned that the plot could write itself as it features the present state of American societal and political mores. She also shared that she envisioned her character as the secretary of state for President-elect Donald Trump.

Debra Messing is expected to reprise her role as Grace. Her involvement in the supposed sequel is pivotal as she is one-half of the title characters. The actress has been busy doing guest spots on other shows and specials such as ‘The Mysteries of Laura.”

Several fans are hoping that Eric McCormack, who played Will, will be back too. The actor starred in Canadian science fiction drama, “Travelers.” He also makes time for his charity works.

‘Will & Grace” aired on NBC for eight seasons. It has received 83 Emmy Award nominations and a total of 16 awards during its eight-year run. The series ended as Will and Grace watched ER and talked about how their kids will get married.

NBC is yet to release a statement regarding a possible revival. Once officially confirmed by the network itself, it is expected that its air date in the US and Australia will be announced soon.
