NBC to Air Special Episode of ’30 Rock’ This July


“What a week, huh?”

Variety has reported that NBC will air a brand new, hour-long episode of their comedy series 30 Rock next month. The new episode will air Thursday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Similar to the Parks and Recreation special from the network, the new 30 Rock episode will be remotely produced in light of COVID-19.

The episode will see the return of 30 Rock regulars Tina Fey (Liz Lemon), Tracy Morgan (Tracy Jordan), Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy), Jack McBrayer (Kenneth Parcell), Jane Krakowski (Jenna Maroney), and more. It will air first on NBC, rebroadcast on networks including USA, Bravo, CNBC, among others, and be available to stream on the upcoming Peacock streaming service (which launches July 15) beginning July 17 at 9 p.m. ET.

30 Rock ran on NBC for seven seasons from 2006-2013. It followed Liz Lemon, the head writer of a comedy show at NBC who must adjust to a new boss, Jack, and a new star, Tracy, while trying to keep her show afloat. Along with the above mentioned cast, 30 Rock also starred Scott Adsit, Judah Friedlander, Keith Powell, Kevin “Dot Com” Brown, Grizz Chapman, and Katrina Bowden. It was created by Tina Fey.

30 Rock is currently available to watch on Hulu.

Julia is a writer/editor/content assistant for Nerds who joined the team in 2019.
