I didn’t want to say goodbye to this iconic TV show the first time. I cheered when it came back and it felt like great timing, but on Thursday the cast and producers of the show announced the series will be signing off NBC after its upcoming third, and now final season.
The cast and producers began to leave heartfelt messages on social media, with Debra Messing starting with: “To the best fans in the world…”
Max Mutchnick who originated the series, and has been its writer and executive producer, had this to say:

So now I must say goodbye again. I was not sure they could recreate the magic of the first run, but so far they have. I am still not sure if they can create a match for the heartfelt ending of Jack and Karen at the piano touching stomachs, but I am sure it will be just as unforgettable!
Catch the final season of 18 episodes on NBC in 2020 – Season Premiere date to be announced.
