Will & Grace is saying goodbye for the second time.

Series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan and executive producer James Burrows announced on Thursday that the upcoming third season of the revived NBC sitcom will be its last. And based on the statement released by Mutchnick, Kohan, and Burrows, the decision to wrap the comedy’s revival run was a creative decision made between the creators and the cast.

“We think of the Will & Grace reboot episodes the way Karen Walker (Megan Mullally) 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,” Mutchnick, Kohan, and Burrows said. “In 2016, Bob Greenblatt came to us with the idea of doing a 10-episode reboot 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.”

Mutchnick also took to social media to thank the fans for all their support since Day 1.

As expected, lots of the show’s followers are saddened by the news, with some encouraging their fellow fans to start a petition to extend the sitcom’s revival.

Some fans, meanwhile, have quickly accepted the show’s fate and are just grateful for all the good things that the show has brought to their lives.

Starring Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally in lead roles, Will & Grace joins The Good Place and Blindspot in the list of NBC shows wrapping their runs next season.

The third season of the Will & Grace revival, which will consist of 18 episodes, will premiere in 2020.
