"We have been picked up for five more episodes next year, so we're not doing 13, we're doing 18," Mutchnick added, while cast members Debra Messing and Eric McCormack got up and did a little dance on the stage.

Originally on air from 1998-2006, the show returned to much critical acclaim last year, with its topical, comedic take on the mostly-single lives of a group of New Yorkers.

"There's certainly a pressure to live up to it this time around. But we knew we could be these characters again. I just feel like this has been a magic carpet ride, this reboot," McCormack said of the revival.

"I was pretty excited to see what was going on in Grace's life at that time. I loved the fact that she was a single working woman, who was thriving and happy, and had great friendships and was just doing great," Messing added.

The second season of the revival will premiere later this year.
