Good news for British fans of Will & Grace! Channel 5 is reported to have signed up to air the most recent season.

The beloved comedy ran on NBC from 1998 to 2006 before being axed. However, following a decade long-hiatus, the show returned for a 16-episode ninth season starting last September.

The latest season has been met with critical approval and strong ratings. It features original stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing in the title roles, alongside sidekicks Jack and Karen, played by Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally.

NBC has announced that a tenth season, to debut later in 2018, is already in the works.

Although the original series of Will & Grace aired on Channel 4 in the UK, Viacom-owner Channel 5 will air the reboot, according to Deadline. It’s understood that the broadcaster will air the show between episodes of Celebrity Big Brother.

GSN has approached Channel 5 for comment.
