Will & Grace Will End After Its Next Season

‘Will & Grace’ Will End After It’s Next Season

Pour yourself a Karen-sized drink, you’re gonna need it. The Will & Grace revival will end after its upcoming third season — OK, technically it will be the 11th season if you count the original series.

“We think of the Will & Grace [revival] episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis — 51 is not enough, 53 is too many,” executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan, and James Burrows said in a statement. ““That is why, after consulting with the cast, we all have decided this will be the final season of Will & Grace.”

“When NBC had the opportunity to reconnect this amazing cast and creative team, we jumped at the chance,” said NBC Entertainment co-chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy. “The impact and legacy of Will and Grace simply can’t be overstated, both as a true game-changer in the portrayal of the LGBTQ community and as one of the finest comedies in television history.” They also thanked Mutchnick, Kohan, Burrows, and the cast “for their brilliance over an incredible run.”

The revival, which began in 2017, has been a hit with critics and fans, thankfully ignoring the time-jump from the original series’ finale and following still single roommates Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) and their pals Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes), complete with celebrity guest stars like Minnie Driver, Samira Wiley, Molly Shannon, Ben Platt, Jane Lynch, Alec Baldwin, and Jennifer Lopez.

“For all ‘Will & Grace’ fans, I am sharing the news that this is going to be our last and final season (which premieres this winter),” Hayes wrote on Twitter. “To everyone who watched the first run and to everyone that encouraged this reboot, we did it all for you.”
