NBC announced today that hit program Will and Grace will return to the network for 10 episodes this fall.
Considered a landmark property in television, Will and Grace was one of the first truly successful shows to feature an openly gay character.
The show ran from 1998 to 2006, and enjoyed excellent consumer confidence, becoming one of the more popular programs in television history.

The limited series will reunite Emmy winners Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally with series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, who will serve as showrunners and executive producers. James Burrows, who directed the entire eight-season run of the original series, will serve as director and executive producer on the revival.
“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. “This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary — all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs.”
Fans of the show have reacted positively on twitter.
Lets hope this reboot can live up to the standard established during the initial run.
