Will there be another series of Will and Grace?
Unfortunately, there is bad news for Will and Grace fans.
The season 11 finale was the last ever episode of Will and Grace.
NBC confirmed in March 2018 that there will not be another series of Will and Grace, after 22 years on television and 246 episodes.
Show creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick spoke to Deadline about the show ending.

Kohan said: “It feels right. It feels like we went out on the terms that we wanted to go out on.
“It feels like we didn’t overstay our welcome and we didn’t end prematurely either. I feel pretty good about that.”
Mutchnick added: “It was a wonderful experience but I agree with David, it’s exactly as it should be.
“We did as many as we should have and it was like having a once in a lifetime experience for a second time.
“ It was such a gift to have it happen in your life, why would we ever think that would happen again so it was a little wonderful miracle.”
Will and Grace originally ended in 2006 after eight seasons.
But in 2017, the show was brought back to NBC alongside all of the show’s beloved main cast.
Originally, Will and Grace was supposed to air as a one-off special series in 2017, yet the cast and crew found themselves doing three more additional seasons instead of one.
However, Mutchnick and Kohan are certain the show will not return for another time

Mutchnick said: “We’re not coming back. There’s no version of us coming back.
“David and I don’t want to do it anymore.
“We own these characters and love them, we’ve shared them and the four actors that play them certainly have a piece of the DNA of these characters in them and the network would ultimately be the ones to decide, but if David and I were given the authority to make the choice, I think it’s time that this story is over.
“We’ve told every story that we can tell for these characters.”

Will and Grace ended with Grace (played by Debra Messing) going into labour and her best friend Will (Eric McCormack), reminiscing about his life in New York City and his ex McCoy (Matt Bomer).
Karen (Megan Mullally) also went to the Statue of Liberty to get closure from her ex-husband Stan and Jack (Sean Hayes) was one step closer to achieving his broadway dream.
However, much to the audience’s frustration, viewers never got to meet Stan.
Fans took to Twitter to share their mixed thoughts and feelings about the end of Will and Grace.
One fan tweeted: “I am so disappointed we never saw Stan….#WillAndGrace #WillAndGraceFarewell”
A second viewer said: “OK I have to be 100% honest here, that was the WORST, I mean the VERY WORST series finale, I have ever seen #WillandGrace #WillAndGraceFarewell”
A third fan said: “Thank you @WillAndGrace for coming back and letting us laugh again during the Trump years! Thank you! #WillAndGraceFarewell (Please come back every ten years.)
