NBC OK's Second Season of Will & Grace Reboot, Drops New Teaser

Will & Grace

Get ready for even more Will & Grace, honey.

Bob Greenblatt, the out chairman of NBC Entertainment, announced at the Television Critics Association press tour Thursday that the sitcom's much-anticipated revival is already cleared for a second season, reports Deadline.

In addition, NBC has expanded its order yet again from 12 to 16 episodes. (The original order announced in January was 10.) The revival will premiere Thursday, September 28, at 9 p.m. Eastern.

Will & Grace, which originally aired from 1998 to 2006, was groundbreaking for its portrayal of gay lead characters on network television. In 2012, then-Vice President Joe Biden credited the Emmy Award-winning series with helping move America's hearts and minds in favor of same-sex marriage.

A revival of the series was confirmed after a surprise election video was released online last fall and went viral. The announcement was followed by a showstopping musical number performed by cast members Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes.
