Series stars Messing and Hayes took to social media Wednesday to announce the news via a NBC trailer that references everything from the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split to Trump and the "Basket of Deplorables."

"We're thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back," NBC's Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. "This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary— all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs."
