‘Will & Grace’ sets series finale date, announces retrospective farewell special

Prepare to bid farewell to Will & Grace— NBC has just clued fans in on when they can expect the sitcom’s series finale to air on television.

It’s been great to see Will & Grace back on the small screen, but the time to once again say goodbye to the beloved sitcom is drawing near.

On Thursday (March 26), NBC revealed that the revival’s series finale would officially be airing next month on Thursday, April 23.

Titled “It’s Time,” the log line for the series finale reveals that fans are in for one jam-packed episode. Check out the description for what’s in store below:

With the apartment packed up, Will (McCormack) is determined not to reminisce about his life in the city or his ex, McCoy (guest star Matt Bomer). Grace (Debra Messing), on the verge of giving birth, keeps having false alarms of going into labor. Karen (Megan Mullally) goes to the top of the Statue of Liberty to get closure with her ex-husband. Jack’s (Sean Hayes) dream of taking a bow on a Broadway stage becomes a very real possibility. Minnie Driver and Brian Jordan Alvarez guest star.

The final episode is set to air at 9 p.m., but fans will definitely want to make sure to tune in early.

In addition to revealing the series finale date, the show also took to its official Twitter account to reveal that the episode would be preceded by a half-hour long retrospective special.

“See you Thursday, April 23 as we celebrate #WillAndGrace and say farewell to the Fab Four,” tweeted the series along with a promo image of the cast announcing the forthcoming special.

So what can fans expect from the retrospective special? Per Deadline, it’ll be hosted by series star Eric McCormack and feature fans and celebrities alike sharing what Will & Grace means to them. In addition, the retrospective special will take a look back on some of the most groundbreaking moments across the series’ 11-season run.

The Will & Grace retrospective special airs Thursday, April 23 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC, directly followed by the show’s series finale, which kicks off at 9 p.m.
