NBC has already renewed its revived “Will & Grace,” nearly two months before the comeback even kicks off. Additionally, the broadcast channel has upped this fall’s run from 12 to 16 episodes.
Network Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt announced the sophomore run and expanded freshman season Thursday afternoon at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.
Season 2 will consist of 13 episodes, he said.
The comeback was original set for a 10-episode run — NBC then called for two more. Clearly, everyone involved believes there is plenty to mine from the ’90s comedy.
Greenblatt was asked earlier in the day about more “Will & Grace,” but he held the news for the show’s actual panel. Cagey.
“Season 1” of “Will & Grace” premieres on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
