'Will & Grace' Creators Tease Finale, Confirm the Show Is Never Coming Back Again

The series finale of Will & Grace is airing TONIGHT (April 23) and this is the second time that fans of the show have had to say goodbye to the beloved series.

The NBC sitcom originally ran for eight seasons from 1998 through 2006. Over a decade later, the show made a return in 2017 and it aired for an additional three seasons. Don’t expect the show to ever return again though!

“We’re never coming back again. We would no sooner make this television show or a frame of it again. It won’t happen. That’s the final word,” series co-creator Max Mutchnick said in a new interview with Variety.

In the series finale episode, you can expect Debra Messing‘s Grace to give birth to her child and for Eric McCormack‘s Will to welcome his child via surrogate. They’re also going to move into a new house together.

“I feel like even in the years since the show first went off, the notion of what a quote-unquote conventional family looks like is very different,” series co-creator David Kohan said. “All the social pressures to keep a conventional nuclear family together have gone away, so our thought was, ‘Why not reimagine what can be considered a normal family structure?’”

Max added, “They are each other’s family. This ending, to me, felt a little bit more honest than the ending we did the first time, in that they end up together. It wasn’t as commonplace [in 2006] as it is now, so it made it easier for us to write about it, but I feel like this was right: They were always destined to be together.”

The series finale episode airs on NBC at 9/8c!
