New Episodes of "Grace and Frankie" Dropped Today!

By Lori Perkins


Just when it seems like our world may be closing up again for Lockdown 2.0, Netflix felt sorry for us and gave us four un-announced episodes of the final season of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin’s older woman’s comedy Grace and Frankie. This is the hilarious sit com about two on-the-surface very different women (and aging hippie and a boss lady) whose husbands leave them for each other who move in together and start a vibrator company for older women! Just fabulous.


These four episodes are only a taste of things to come. The entire final season will be 16 episodes. And I hope that Netflix will dole them out in these bit-sized portions so we don’t have to wait another year, although right now the rest of the season is slated to be released in 2022.


This season’s final 16-episode order has made Grace and Frankie the longest-running Netflix original series ever, with a total of 94 episodes.


In a video released today to announce the four episodes, Jane Fonda explained, "We've missed you, but more importantly, you've missed us," Tomlin says in a video accompanying the release. "We just wanted to give you something special until we finish the rest of the seasons.”


"It was between this and Del Taco giftcards. I wanted to go with the giftcards," Lily Tomlin joked. (Her character is a BIG fan of the California fast-food chain).
