DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, March 2018) "Will & Grace" is giving you more, honey! The return of "Will & Grace," which began as an Internet reunion that turned into a one-season order and then a two-season order before it even went back on the air last fall, has just been ordered for a third season to premiere in fall 2019. With its razor-sharp wit intact and all four Emmy Award-winning actors back at the top of their game, one of the best NBC Must See comedies will return for an 18-episode third season. In addition, the network has increased the season two order, which will begin again next fall, from 13 to 18 episodes. The announcement was made by Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. "As far as I'm concerned, we can't get enough of 'Will & Grace' and 23 more episodes is music to my ears," Greenblatt said. "We're eternally grateful that Debra, Eric, Sean and Megan feel the same way and wanted to keep this good thing going. I'm overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience, and my hat is off to the unrivaled writing team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, as well as the brilliant directing of Jimmy Burrows, for consistently delivering one of the best shows on television." So far this season "Will & Grace" is averaging a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" figures from Nielsen Media Research. "Will & Grace" is NBC's most-watched primetime comedy at this point in the season in eight years and has improved its Thursday timeslot by +48% versus NBC's year-ago results for regular non-sports programming in 18-49. "Will & Grace" has received critical acclaim since the show's return in September. "Watching it is like running into an old flame who looks fantastic and is as bright and fun as ever," said The New York Times. Entertainment Weekly wrote that "'Will & Grace' has been just as incredible as the original series: hilarious, poignant, contemporary" while USA Today added, "Watching the foursome is like taking in a tango by professional dancers." Season one has been highlighted by an array of top guest stars, including Jennifer Lopez, Alec Baldwin, Minnie Driver, Ben Platt, Molly Shannon, Jane Lynch, Andrew Rannells and more.
