We asked, we pleaded, we prayed—and our prayers have been answered: Leslie Jordan has confirmed that Will & Grace is coming back to NBC for a 10 episode run.
Jordan, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of fey munchkin Beverley Leslie, told San Diego’s KPBS that the beloved sitcom is “absolutely” coming back. The 61-year-old actor added that NBC had ordered 10 episodes and shooting would begin in July.
The special election-themed webisode that premiered in September was a viral sensation, and W&G star Megan Mullally later teased “there is a very good chance that” the show was coming back, a decade after it left the air.
“It’s not happening right this second,” she told PrideSource. “I mean, we’re not rehearsing or anything like that. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize.”
Jordan’s confirmation suggests he’ll be involved in the new episodes—how that would work is not clear, as Beverly Leslie was last seen blown off of a balcony by a strong wind to his death.
But, honestly, who cares?
