(NEW YORK) -- One of NBC's signature series will begin its final season on Thursday night.
The Emmy-winning comedy 30 Rock, starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, launches its seventh season at 8 p.m. Eastern time. The abridged season will consist of 13 episodes.
In the season premiere, Baldwin's NBC executive, Jack Donaghy, unveils his fall programming lineup as the show-within-a-show TGS returns from hiatus, and Kenneth and Hazel welcome Tracy into their home.
What can we expect the rest of the season?
Sherri Shepherd, who plays the wife of Tracy Morgan's character, says, "I think you're going to see a lot of story lines wrapped up, I think you're going to see a lot more outrageousness, and I think you're going to see a lot of the stars that have come through in these roles, I think they're going to bring them back. I'm hoping me."
