Will & Grace to End After Season 11

The NBC revival comes to a close after three seasons

It's time to bid adieu to Will & Grace... again.

NBC announced Thursday that the revival of the hit comedy will come to an end after the upcoming season, the show's 11th overall, and that it was ultimately a creative decision between the cast and creators.

"We think of the Will & Grace [revival] 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," said creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan and executive producer and director James Burrows in a statement. "In 2016, Bob Greenblatt came to us with the idea of doing a 10-episode [revival] 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."

They went on to thank stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally, whom they called "the finest and funniest ensemble sitcom cast of all time."

Messing shared the news on Instagram, writing, "ANNOUNCEMENT~ 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... I love you all."

With The Good Place also coming to an end this year, let's hope NBC has got a plan for replacing two beloved comedies in its lineup!

Will & Grace will return at midseason.
