It's been almost 11 years to the day since Will & Grace said goodbye after eight years on television, but the show will be back in the fall, NBC announced with a photo of the original cast members sitting backwards in director's chairs.
Megan Mullally got fans excited back in December when she teased the possibility of a full-on reunion following the shooting of a brief new segment.
"There's some interest, people have been talking, there's some rumors," she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "From what I can tell, a lot of people really want the show to come back, so we'll see what happens." Andy then ventured that the cast would need "three dump trucks full of money" in order to sign on for a new series.
Beep beep, the dump trucks sure pulled up fast!
Mullally said that when they all got together last year to film, it didn't feel like any time had passed. "It was crazy. It was kind of like we had just been away for the weekend. The best part was really that it was all the same people, not just the cast, but Jim Burrows the director, the lighting designer, the costume designer, the set designer, the writer, I mean, everybody the same."
Mullally is currently on tour with her musical project Nancy and Beth, who have just offered via Instagram to marry people attending their concerts from Saturday through Tuesday in Pittsburgh, West Virginia, NYC and DC. Seems like a romantic way for at least one pair of hardcore fans out there to celebrate the return of a beloved TV series (and a positive break from Debra Messing-related feuds).
