Having revived the series to much success in 2017, executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan and James Burrows have announced that the U.S. sitcom Will & Grace is to come to an end in 2020.
“We think of the Will & Grace reboot episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis – 51 is not enough, 53 is too many,” reads their official statement. “That is why, after consulting with [Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullaly], we all have decided this will be the final season of Will & Grace.”
“In 2016, Bob Greenblatt came to us with the idea of doing a 10-episode reboot of Will & Grace,” they continue. “They say you can’t go home again, but we did. And now, three seasons and 52 episodes later, we’re even more proud of something we never thought we’d get a chance to do again. We have had a once-in-a-lifetime experience twice. And for that, we owe a double debt of gratitude to NBC, this show’s supportive and caring home since day one.”
The upcoming season will be the third since the show’s revival, and it’s eleventh overall. A premiere date for the final season is yet to be revealed.
