Grace and Frankie returns to Netflix on January 15th for their sixth season
Grace and Frankie fans have a whole lot to be excited for after all the holiday parties and gift-giving ends — that’s because the beloved show is debuting its sixth season on Netflix January 15, 2020.
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin’s long-running series about a pair of rivals who become close friends after finding out that their husbands (Robert, played by Martin Sheen, and Sol, played by Sam Waterston) have carried on a relationship for 20 years is getting a sixth and seventh season, both announced this year. This week, they shared the premiere date for season six.
They announced back in September that there would be a seventh season — and it would be their last.
Not to worry though, even though fans will be heartbroken to see these ladies go, they can at least take comfort in the show’s success. With the seventh season on deck, they’re now officially the longest-running show in Netflix history.
“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,” Tomlin and Fonda said. The show is so loved that the sixth season renewal was announced before the fifth season even aired.
To say fans are pumped at the iconic show’s return is a giant understatement. They. Are. Here for it.
At the end of the fifth season, we saw Grace and Frankie looking back on the last three years they’ve spent together, wondering how it all would’ve gone had they not spent them living with each other. Now that Grace is married to Nick, it would make sense if they decided to no longer co-habitate, so a change of scenery might be happening for the pair. Also, there’s rumors of a Dolly Parton appearance, which would make 9 to 5-loving folks extremely happy.
If you want to catch up on all of the seasons before the new one airs, you can hit up Netflix and binge-watch the Christmas break away.
