Netflix has greenlit “Grace and Frankie” for a seventh and final season. With this final 16-episode order, the comedy, produced by Skydance Television, will make history as the longest-running Netflix original series ever (both comedy and drama) with 94 episodes.
The pick up of “Grace and Frankie” comes ahead of the upcoming sixth season, which will be available for streaming in January 2020. Stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston, Martin Sheen, June Diane Raphael, Brooklyn Decker, Baron Vaughn, and Ethan Embry will all reprise their roles in the seventh season.
“We are both delighted and heartbroken that ‘Grace & Frankie’ will be back for its seventh, though final, season,” said Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in a 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.”
