It has been nearly a decade since "Will & Grace" has produced a full episode, but in the fall, the fabled sitcom is set to return to NBC. 

NBC announced on Wednesday that the original cast is reuniting for a 10-episode season during the 2017-18 television season. NBC produced 194 episodes of the sitcom from 1998-2006. 


Will & Grace was notable as it was one of the first television programs to feature gay cast members. The show was critically acclaimed with 16 total Emmy Awards. 

Will & Grace is joining a growing list of shows from the 1990s and 2000s coming back from its season finale. Shows such as "Full House" and "Gilmore Girls" are among a group of shows that have come back long after their demise.
