“Will & Grace” will conclude after its upcoming third season.
Executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan and James Burrows announced in a joint statement to Variety that the reboot episodes will come to an end.
“We think of the ‘Will & Grace’ reboot episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis – 51 is not enough, 53 is too many,” the statement reads. “That is why, after consulting with the cast, we all have decided this will be the final season of ‘Will & Grace.’”
The final season will wrap with 18 episodes in 2020.
Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally also made the announcement on social media.
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). To everyone who watched the first run and to everyone that encouraged this reboot, we did it all for you. ❤️ Love to you all. Sean pic.twitter.com/VJHCl5P3iW— Sean Hayes (@SeanHayes) July 25, 2019
Well, we’re taking this one out like we brought it in: with love, laughs, gratitude… and on our own terms.

View this post on InstagramANNOUNCEMENT~ to the best fans IN THE WORLD, W&G fans, we wanted to tell you that this will be the last season of the Reboot. The creative team (pictured) got together and we decided it was the right time. We were so lucky to have the opportunity to reunite and do the show AGAIN. It was only supposed to be 10 episodes, but because of you, the fans, it has turned into 3 YEARS. What a miracle. We are all committed to making this season the best ever, and to wrap up the story of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen in a way that feels meaningful and right. THANK YOU @nbc and @bobgreenblattpics for bringing us all back together. We have been spoiled,once again, by brilliant writers and producers, and the best crew in town. I love you all. ❤️ A post shared by Debra Messing (@therealdebramessing) on
