'Will & Grace' Actor Says Comedy Returning To NBC With 10 New Episodes

'Will & Grace' actor Leslie Jordan says that the beloved comedy will be returning to NBC next season.

Jordan, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Karen Walker's frenemy Beverley Leslie, told San Diego radio station KPBS that it's a done deal.

"It's back," Jordan said. "Here's the way it works: NBC has ordered 10 episodes. It'll be for next season, so the cast will go in July. And then they'll add the guest cast. I'll get a phone call."

The 61-year-old actor said the role was originally written for Joan Collins.

"They fired her," he said. "They wanted to pull her wig off... she wouldn't allow her wig to be pulled off, and so I just walked into an audition."

NBC hasn't officially confirmed the news. However, creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick and stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally have all signed on to the revival.

Mullally hinted in early December that a return of the series was inevitable.

"All I can say is that there is a very good chance that might happen," Mullally told PrideSource. "It's not happening right this second. I mean, we're not rehearsing or anything like that. But there is a very good chance that something is going to materialize."

The series ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006 on NBC.
