Good news for fans of Netflix’s hit show Grace and Frankie. The streaming platform just surprised us all and dropped four episodes from its seventh and final season.
We learned back in 2019 that the seventh installment will feature 16 episodes ( bringing the total to 94), making it the longest-running Netflix original series of all time. The remaining 12 episodes will premiere in 2022.
“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,” said series co-creators and showrunners Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris.
If you didn’t know, the comedy follows ex-frenemies Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) as they try to piece together their tumultuous lives after their husbands come out as gay and leave them for each other (ouch).
“We are both delighted and heartbroken that Grace and Frankie will be back for its seventh, though final, season,” said Fonda and Tomlin in a joint statement. “We’re so grateful that our show has been able to deal with issues that have really connected to our grand generation. And their kids, and amazingly, their kids as well! We’ll miss these two old gals, Grace and Frankie, as much as many of their fans will, but we’ll still be around. We’ve outlasted so many things—just hope we don’t outlast the planet.”
Looks like we officially have weekend plans.
