30 Rock exec Robert Carlock has revealed his plans for the final season.

The Emmy-winning comedy will come to an end after seven seasons, NBC chief Robert Greenblatt recently confirmed.

"This is a show that doesn't tend to go quietly into the night," Carlock told Entertainment Weekly. "The challenge next year will be doing justice to all of the characters and landing everyone in the right place."

Carlock added that he hopes to have a number of 30 Rock guest stars reprise their roles for the last episodes.

"Devon Banks (Will Arnett) has to rear his ugly head again," he said. "I want to get Michael Sheen back as Wesley Snipes. I loved him so much.

"We say every year that we're going to get [former Saturday Night Live star] Tim Meadows on the show. This year we just have to figure that out."

30 Rock has previously staged two live episodes, but Carlock suggested that the final season is unlikely to include a third episode in the same vein.

"We haven't really discussed it, and I think it'll be tough," he said. "There's not a lot of runway for us to land the plane this year, and a live show is not really an opportunity for us to tell much story."

30 Rock will return to NBC this fall on Thursdays at 8/7c. The series airs on Comedy Central in the UK.
