Fans of Netflix’s Grace and Frankie don’t have to wait much longer for the series to return. The streaming service has announced Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin will be back as the title characters on January 18th with the fifth season. Check out a trailer for the new season below…
In Grace and Frankie, Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) star as two women whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie form an unlikely and unbreakable bond and face their uncertain futures head-on, hand-in-hand. Together with their ex-husbands and children, they discover the true definition of “family,” with laughter, tears, and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.
Grace and Frankie stars Fonda, Tomlin, Martin Sheen (The West Wing), Sam Waterston (The Newsroom), Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It), Ethan Embry (First Man), June Diane Raphael (Unfinished Business) and Baron Vaughn (Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Return). The upcoming season will also feature Primetime Emmy Award winner RuPaul (RuPaul’s Drag Race) as a guest star in the role of Benjamin Le Day, a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace and Frankie.
Grace and Frankie season 5 will premiere on January 18th.
