NBC is pulling out all the stops in support of a high-profile comedy premiere set for next month. The network announced Thursday that it is renewing its revival of “Will & Grace” ahead of the show’s Sept. 28 premiere.
The program also received an expanded order for the upcoming season, with NBC adding four episodes to the show’s order, bringing the season to 16 episodes. The following season received an order for 13 episodes.
NBC also released a new promo clip for the show, which you can see below.
Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally are all back, reprising their roles as Will, Grace, Jack and Karen.
“The legendary James Burrows, director of every original ‘Will & Grace’ episode, returns along with a slew of razor-sharp jabs and dirty martinis,” NBC says in today’s announcement. “Behold once again, from the minds of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, TV’s wittiest ensemble ever.”
Along with executive producers Mutchnick and Kohan, Alex Herschlag, Tracy Poust & Jon Kinnally also executive produce. Burrows will direct and executive produce.
The program is produced by Universal Television.
