NBC has announced that the revival of comedy “Will & Grace” will end after these three rebooted seasons. In total, that will take “Will & Grace” to 11-seasons (and 246 episodes). Eleven final episodes will comprise the now final season, which will return at an undisclosed time in 2020.
From executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan and James Burrows:
“We think of the Will & Grace’ reboot episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis – 51 is not enough, 53 is too many. That is why, after consulting with the cast, 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 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.”
“It’s been the highlight of our careers to write for and direct four incredible artists who we consider to be the finest and funniest ensemble sitcom cast of all time – Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes.”
The original run on “Will & Grace,” which concluded in 2006, ran for eight seasons. It returned on Sept. 28, 2017 after an 11-season absence to solid interest on NBC. But by the second season of the reboot the audience fled in droves.
