(CNN) -- "Will & Grace" is saying goodbye ... again.

The cast and producers of the show on Thursday announced the series will be signing off NBC after its upcoming season, airing in 2020.

Star Debra Messing wrote on Instagram that the creative team "decided it was the right time" to bid farewell to the reboot, which aired for three seasons.

"We were so lucky to have the opportunity to reunite and do the show AGAIN. It was only supposed to be 10 episodes, but because of you, the fans, it has turned into 3 YEARS," she wrote. "What a miracle. We are all committed to making this season the best ever, and to wrap up the story of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen in a way that feels meaningful and right."

The original series ran for eight seasons from 1998-2006.

The show returned in September 2017, after initially sparking reboot interest with a 10-minute politics-themed mini reunion.

The reboot was renewed for a third season in March 2018, ahead of its second season.

"We're taking this one out like we brought it in: with love, laughs, gratitude... and on our own terms," Eric McCormack wrote on Twitter.
