Netflix announced that the hit comedy series Grace and Frankie starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin has been renewed for a seventh and final season.
“It’s thrilling and somehow fitting, that our show about the challenges, as well as the beauty and dignity of aging, will be the oldest show on Netflix,” co-creators and show runners Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris said in a statement.
“Since its premiere in 2015, Grace and Frankie has expertly and hilariously demystified the experience of growing older and given a voice to the fastest-growing segment of our population,” stated Netflix VP originals Cindy Holland.
“Jane, Lily, Sam and Martin have become role models for fans that span generations around the world, and we are so proud to have been a part of the show’s journey from day one. A special thanks to Marta, Howard, and the team at Skydance, who have been superb partners every step of the way.”
The story of the show revolves around Grace and Frankie who have been rivals but they learn that their husbands have fallen in love with each other and want to get married. The two ladies form a unique friendship after this revelation.
”David, Marcy [Ross] and I, along with the entire team at Skydance couldn’t be prouder to have Grace and Frankie launch our television division.
We are thankful to our partners at Netflix who stepped up to make a show for people who didn’t see themselves on television,” said Skydance chief creative officer Dana Goldberg.Grace and Frankie has captured the zeitgeist and audiences of all ages thanks to the brilliant vision of Marta Kauffman and Howard Morris and the incredible talent of our cast led by legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.“Seven seasons later
