After being brought back to television in 2017 for a reboot, Will & Grace will again come to end after three seasons.

On Thursday, July 25 NBC network released a statement regarding the ending of the popular series.

“When NBC had the opportunity to reconnect this amazing cast and creative team, we jumped at the chance, NBC Entertainment co-chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy said in a statement.. “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 [Mutchnick], David [Kohan], Jimmy [Burrows] and a cast that is second to none for their brilliance over an incredible run.”

Debra Messing, who plays Grace Adler, took to Instagram to share her own thank yous for a great run.

“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, she wrote. “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. ❤️”

Debra wasn’t the only cast member to speak out about the show coming to an end. Eric McCormack, who plays Will Truman and Sean Hayes, who plays Jack McFarland, also took to Twitter for a farewell statement.

“Well, we’re taking this one out like we brought it in: with love, laughs, gratitude… and on our own terms,” Eric wrote. “Season 3 of #WillandGrace (well, season 11!) will be our grand finale… and it’s gonna be FANTASTIC.”

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),” Sean wrote. “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.”

Will & Grace, created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan,  premiered in September 1998 and ran for eight season ending in 2006. The show focused on the friend ship between interior designer, Grace Adler (Messing) and a gay lawyer, Will Truman (McCormack). Early on the show received criticism for it’s portrayal of homosexual character but went on to become one of the network’s most popular shows.

The show was rebooted in 2017 for a ninth season, with all four main cast members returning—Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally.

The new season, containing 18 episodes, will air during the 2019-2020 season.
