'Will & Grace' Picked Up For A Third Season

Eric McCormack Megan Mullally Debra Messing and Sean Hayes

The revival of American sitcom "Will and Grace" has been extended to season three and its second one has been expanded. Additionally, Will & Grace was renewed for a third season, which will be slated to premiere in 2019.

The first season of the Will & Grace revival (actually season 9) hasn't even finished airing, and NBC has already officially ordered another two. And since its return, the show has received wide critical acclaim for its topical take on everything from politics to divorce. The ratings have been a boon to NBC, which needed a primetime hit. It is produced by Universal Television and features original stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally.

"I'm overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience", Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman, said.

The revival of the hit sitcom is now enjoying its first season, but NBC already sealed a deal for the third run of Will & Grace. With Messing's win in 2003, "Will and Grace" became only the third TV series in Emmy history in which all four of the main cast won awards, following "All in the Family" and "The Golden Girls".

The revival is now averaging a 3.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 9.8 million total viewers, according to live plus seven day data from Nielsen. "'Will & Grace' is NBC's most-watched prime-time comedy at this point in the season in eight years and has improved its Thursday timeslot by +48% versus NBC's year-ago results for regular non-sports programming in 18-49".

Overall, the Will & Grace revival is getting 52 episodes.

NBC announced on August 3 it had ordered a second season of the reboot more than a month before it premiered.
