The final season of Will & Grace was originally set to premiere in 2020, but NBC is pushing up the premiere after pulling the new comedy series Sunnyside from the schedule.
Will & Grace will take the place of Sunnyside on NBC’s schedule on Thursday nights at 9:30pm. The first episode of the 11th and final season will premiere on October 24.
Kal Penn‘s Sunnyside will now air weekly on the NBC app, NBC.com, and other digital platforms beginning with episode five. In a vote of confidence for the show, NBC has ordered an additional episode, giving the season 11 episodes instead of 10.
