The rumours are true – the new series of ‘Will & Grace’ is officially on! NBC announced this week, after several weeks of speculation, that the comedy favourite is being revived for a special run on the network later this year.

Is the hit comedy going to be hitting our screens again soon?
Emmy Award-winning comedy Will And Grace looks set to be hitting our television screens again with NBC expressing great interest in broadcasting the programme. The news comes after a spoof election video went viral in September and it seems as if the success of it has reignited the desire to bring back the show to our television screens with a 10 episode series in the works.

The cast had teased something big was coming and all was revealed on Monday night.
After a decade away ‘Will and Grace’ returned to our screens on Monday night, for a special 10 minute mini-episode which aired before Hillary Clinton took on Donald Trump in the first presidential TV debate. The special episode was designed to encourage fans to vote in the upcoming election and saw undecided voter Jack hear the arguments for both Clinton and Trump (spoiler he’s voting Hillary).
The episode began with Will (Eric Mccormack) telling Grace (Debra Messing) he couldn't believe Trump was running in the upcoming election and vowing he would never speak to a Trump supporter. Then enters Karen (Megan Mullally) carrying a ‘vote Trump’ handbag and two American flags.
The NBC series ended a decade ago, but Will, Grace, Karen and Jack haven't changed a bit.
The cast of ‘Will and Grace’ staged an epic reunion last week, which has left fans speculating that big things are coming. Stars Debra Messing, Eric Mccormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally have been all over social media posting pics of the cast together again, but they were all very careful not to reveal what was really going on.

'Perception' is no more, despite scoring solid ratings for TNT.
TNT's has cancelled drama series Perception after three seasons. The show is the latest victim in Kelly Reilly's brand evolution of the channel, with Franklin & Bash also getting culled earlier this year.

Perception starred Will & Grace actor Eric McCormack as a talented but eccentric neuropsychiatrist hired by the FBI to assist in solving some of the most complex cases in Chicago. It was popular with viewers and although the third season was down 9% on season two, it still drew a very solid 2.8 million viewers. Perception opened its fourth season with 3.1 million viewers - a huge increase on the recent Franklin & Bash opener, which pulled in just 1.25 million.

Romeo Killer delayed, then not delayed
Romeo Killer: The Christopher Porco Story was supposed to air this weekend on Lifetime, but due to an intervention from Porco himself, the TV movie was in danger of being delayed.
Porco said that Lifetime needed permission to use his name, this being a show that fictionalizes his murders. And, by virtue of the fact he’s making a fuss, we’re assuming it’s very much a permission not granted situation. New York state Supreme Court Judge Robert Muller sided with Porco, and ruled that the show be delayed until a late April court date can resolve the situation. "It's a sad day when a convicted murderer who has exhausted all of his appeals can convince any court to stop people from exercising their First Amendment right to talk about his crime," Lifetime spokesman Les Eisner said. Eisner got his way though, and an emergency appeal on Thursday saw permission for Romeo Killer - starring Eric Mccormack - to air Saturday and Sunday.
