They'll need to get it somehow.

But that's where keyservers are handy.  You push the key with the new
expiration date to the keyserver.  People (hopefully) refresh regularly
and get the new date.  If they don't refresh regularly, when they see
the expired key they will (hopefully) refresh manually from the
keyserver.  If they don't do either, when they tell you your key is
expired, you can tell them it's up-to-date on the keyserver and/or mail
them a copy of the new public key.
