Leslie Jordan Confirms “Will & Grace” Returning To NBC For 10 Episode Run!

Leslie Jordan has confirmed that Will & Grace will be coming back to NBC more than a decade after the series ended in 2006.

The 61-year-old actor, who played Karen Walker’s frenemy Beverley Leslie throughout the series, told San Diego’s KPBS that the sitcom is “absolutely” coming back and added that NBC had ordered 10 episodes and shooting would begin in July.

Shortly after NBC dropped a special election-themed webisode back in September, Megan Mullally teased that “there is a very good chance that” the show would come back on 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.”

A month later, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes were all reportedly in talks to reprise their characters for an abbreviated season, reports the Huffington Post.
