Will & Grace revival renewed for season 2

At this point we might as well just face facts that Will & Grace is back as a regular show on NBC.

Originally running from 1998 to 2006, it was announced in the spring that Will & Grace was coming back for a revival this fall. It was originally supposed to be 10 episodes, then it expanded to 12. Now it has been expanded to 16 and a second season has been ordered for the 2018-2019 season.

While the idea of bringing the series was cute at first, now I’m just scratching my head.

On top all of this it has now been revealed they will ignore the ending of the series that had Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) settling down into family lives. Apparently they don’t think there is a lot of comedy there to be explored.

I mean, congrats to everyone involved, but do we really need to bring this series back? Why not do something original instead?

Oh, that’s right, because only reboots and revivals matter these days.
