Popular sitcom Will And Grace is ending its nine-year run soon and plans for a spin-off featuring Jack McFarland, played by Emmy winner Sean Hayes, are in jeopardy.
The show is finishing in May and producers were hoping to persuade the actor to keep playing the flamboyantly funny character on his own show.
Hayes started getting cold feet after seeing the dismal ratings for Friends spin-off Joey, starring Matt LeBlanc.
A source says, "This has been in the works since last year.
"Sean was originally excited about the idea, but he saw what happened to Matt's show and he changed his mind."
There is still hope for Will And Grace fans - producers are currently planning a movie for the big screen that would reunite all of the show's characters.
