There’s no stopping Will & Grace, at least not yet. Not only has NBC ordered more episodes for the show’s upcoming 10th season, the network has also greenlit Will & Grace season 11!
As a fan of Will & Grace, I’m really happy to hear this news. Back in 2008, when the show aired its eight season (with the time jump finale), fans could tell the storyline was rushed. So, it was great to see the show returning after all these years in 2017, and ignoring the finale in a hilarious manner. And while the current season only has two more episodes left to air, NBC will be giving us more of Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen because the network has expanded the number of episodes for season 10 and greenlit Will & Grace season 11! Both awesome announcements were made at the Will & Grace panel at PlayFest.

NBC revived the series for a 13-episode tenth season back in August. The episode order has now been increased to 18. The tenth season will premiere in fall 2018. According to Deadline, the main cast will also be getting an increase in salary (from their recent $250,000 an episode). Knowing that the entire main cast (two men and two women) gets equal pay is refreshing to hear about in the current climate.
“As far as I’m concerned, we can’t get enough of Will & Grace, and 23 more episodes is music to my ears,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said. “We’re eternally grateful that Debra, Eric, Sean, and Megan feel the same way and wanted to keep this good thing going. I’m overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience, and my hat is off to the unrivaled writing team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, as well as the brilliant directing of Jimmy Burrows, for consistently delivering one of the best shows on television.”
The revival of Will & Grace has proven itself a rating success for NBC and it’s great to know the network has decided to keep it on the air for longer.
