Will & Grace confirms final season (again)

The Will & Grace revival will end with its upcoming third season (and 11th overall).

The final season, which will consist of another 18 episodes, will wrap things up in 2020 (and every single episode directed by James Burrows).

Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally reprised their roles on the back of a short video to promote Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

“We think of the Will and 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 and Grace,” creators Max Mutchnick, David Kohan and exeutive producer/director James Burrows said.

“In 2016, Bob Greenblatt came to us with the idea of doing a 10-episode reboot of Will and 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.”

NBC Entertainment co-chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy said, “When NBC had the opportunity to reconnect this amazing cast and creative team, we jumped at the chance. 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.

“A huge thank you to Max, David, Jimmy and a cast that is second to none for their brilliance over an incredible run.”

    James Burrows James Burrows James Burrows. One of my heroes. Extraordinary career. It’s always the big stars and comedic legends that get the credit.

  2. I have the original series run as a box set. On the occasion I’ve caught a glimpse of the continuation it’s been rather cringeworthy.

      • All network tv ratings in the US are dire compared to the beginning of the decade. Streaming has decimated the albatros. They were stuck in “sweeps” and reruns mode for 20 plus years. Once binge watching on Netflix became the norm, along with freedom from the regulators, people moved away from network tv and never came back.
