Will & Grace's reboot is ending and NBC co-chairman Paul Telegedy wants longtime fans of the beloved series to know that it's not due to behind-the-scenes drama.
"Some things come to a natural end," Telegdy recently told TVLine, admitting that reports of a feud between co-stars Debra Messing and Megan Mullally "were greatly and falsely exaggerated." "Max and David told the story they wanted to tell. Just wait for the finale. It’s epic; it ties together so many threads. It is coming to a great, natural end," he said. The final season will consist of 18 episodes and debut later this year on NBC.
NBC announced that the revival would end after its third season, but the rumor mill kicked into high gear with word that the co-stars weren't exactly getting along. More eyes on the topic arrived when the Daily Mail reported that the two had unfollowed one another on Instagram. Creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick tried to squash the fuss, but it seems that the rumor made its way up the food chain to Telegedy.
