Sorry, show queens, but it's official: NBC's Smash will end its run with a two-hour series finale airing May 26.

The making of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe! Songs by partners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman! Will & Grace's Debra Messing! Guest stars like Bernadette Peters and Jennifer Hudson! In other words, Smash is quite possibly the gayest show on television.

“I don’t want [viewers] to think they are going to be left hanging, because they won’t be,” out showrunner Josh Safran said previously. “The season has a beginning, middle and an end… [And] it just gets better and better." 

The series finale episodes are titled "The Nominations" and "The Tonys," so you know where shows-within-a-show Bombshell and Hit List are headed. As revealed in a new set of preview photos, Behind the Candelabra's Cheyenne Jackson makes a cameo as himself — alongside fellow stage diva Christine Ebersole — to announce those Tony nods.

Meanwhile, another out actor, Luke Macfarlane, also appears in the finale... hey, why's he getting so cozy with Christian Borle as gay composer-director Tom Levitt? Guess we'll have to tune in May 26 and find out.
