Last month, we all cried happy tears when the cast of Emmy-winning TV series Will & Grace reunited for a special election-themed mini-episode. Now it seems we may have even more of a reason to rejoice. Rumor has it that talks are underway for a potential new season of Will & Grace. I KNOW! Go ahead, freak out. I'll wait.

You good? Okay. So here's the deal. Though nothing is set in stone as of yet, Deadline reports that conversations to bring the show back are in progress and "there is a will to pursue it." (Eek!) Rumor has it the plan would be to do a single 10-episode run, but Universal TV (the studio that produced the show) and NBC have not confirmed anything.

Deadline says that it's possible a new Will & Grace season might air on NBC, but more likely that it'd be on Netflix or a similar streaming service. (No official talks with any service have started as of yet.)

Before we can get new episodes, Universal would have to lock down actors Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally, as well as the show's creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. Though contract negotiations for the cast might be difficult (they've all had pretty successful careers post-Will & Grace), none of them are currently tied down to another series, so there's definitely hope.

Basically, we don't know much yet. All we know is that it's possible that Will and Grace and Jack and Karen may soon be returning to our lives.
