Is the hit comedy going to be hitting our screens again soon?
Emmy Award-winning comedy Will And Grace looks set to be hitting our television screens again with NBC expressing great interest in broadcasting the programme. The news comes after a spoof election video went viral in September and it seems as if the success of it has reignited the desire to bring back the show to our television screens with a 10 episode series in the works.

The original run of Will And Grace lasted eight series and won 16 Emmy's, whilst receiving 83 nominations. Eric Mccormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes all received individual Emmy's for the hit-show.
The comedy about a single woman and her gay best friend who share an apartment together was massively popular running from 1998 to 2006, with the cast was rumoured to be making $600,000 each per episode when the series was at its most popular.
There has yet to be an agreement with any of the four main stars and the two creators, but it is believed that very early talks are in place. Universal Studios would love to secure the rights to the programme though it is believed that it might also be suited to a streaming provider like Netflix or Amazon Prime.
Speaking after the election video received over six million views on YouTube Debra Messing, who plays Grace on the show, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of new episodes and stated she believed a move to a streaming service would be more favourable.
"I think that the logistics of all of our lives - there would just be way too many things to hammer out. But for something shorter-lived and maybe having the limitations of being on network TV lifted may give us a fun, fresh opportunity because we could be really, really naughty!"
