NBC is reviving its must-see-TV classic for 12 new episodes this fall.

The Untold Truth Of Will & Grace
Will and Grace, along with their pals Karen, an outspoken socialite, and Jack, a free-spirited actor, face the highs and lows of life in Manhattan together. From sex, dating and divorce to cutting cultural commentary, nothing's off limits! Then, 11 years later, the foursome reunites with their razor-sharp jabs, super-hot takes and of course, very dirty martinis.

Grace is een zelfstandige binnenhuisarchitecte en Will is een succesvolle advocaat.
