NBC announced Thursday that one of its iconic comedy series will sign off after an 11-season run spanning four decades. “Will & Grace’s” Will Truman, Grace Adler, Jack McFarland and Karen Walker “will say goodbye to their incredibly loyal fans following the upcoming season that begins in 2020,” NBC said.
The series reboot, which began airing in September 2017, will eventually span 52 episodes and three seasons, in addition to the 194 episodes that made up the show’s original run from 1998-2006.
In a joint statement, George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, 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 & 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.”
