‘Grace and Frankie’ Gets Second Season on Netflix

Grace and Frankie TV Review Netflix
Melissa Moseley for Netflix

Netflix has given a second season to “Grace and Frankie,” Variety has confirmed.

The series, which bowed on the digital channel earlier this month, was created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris. It stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as sworn enemies who find common ground when their husbands leave them for each other. Season two will debut in 2016.

“Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix,” said Kauffman. “Because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, ‘We’d like to do a season two.’ So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted [Sarandos] and Miley to thank.”

“Grace and Frankie” is produced by Skydance Television for Netflix. Executive producers for the series are Kauffman (through her company Okay Goodnight), Morris, Paula Weinstein, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, Fonda and Tomlin.

    Thought I was crazy when watching the episode with Sam Elliott I thought I’ve seen this before jogged my memory bank it’s almost the same scene in Lilly’s movie Grandma. Why did they do that?

    How do I watch this?

  11. Joan Gail says:

    I love everyone in the cast except for June Diane Raphael who plays Brianna. Her character comes across as a very spoiled brat who only cares about one person, herself.

  12. Donna says:

    I’m 58 and I love love love it!

  13. Susan Specker says:

    I just found this show and it is fabulous. I’m 55 and it doesn’t matter what age you are because there is something relevant. Love the acting, actresses, actors, and music. This is my new drug of choice! My son’s are always wondering why I’m laughing so hard!

  14. Eve Bellini says:

    I hope this show keeps going. I am 46 and LOVE Frankie. I am a lot like her and it is great to have a spot light on the older generation. It is about time people seen that Older people are just as important and can still be wild and have a great life. Grace and Frankie are the best. Love you all. Keep on Keepin on.

  18. Jacquelin says:

    bring on season three please

  19. S says:

    Grace and Frankie is possibly the singularly best thing to ever hit our screens.

    It’s not about cops and robbers and gore and death and violence (the usual Hollywood crap) – it’s about real, modern day life, how reality can be stranger than fiction when certain changes sweep through your life and how two very beautiful ‘over the hill’ (they’re so not!) women cope.

    It’s funny, it’s so heartwarming and so very worthwhile watching that I will cancel my Netflix subscription (again) when I’ve finished watching season 2 (which I’ll probably do in one weekend).

  20. Diana Rodriguez says:

    Grace and Frankie series one of the funniest, realistic and emotion filled based on what most middle age woman find themselves going through on daily basis. Please do not stop making this show.

  21. Michelle Stuesse says:

    This is an amazing show for any age group! It cleverly deals with the issues of growing older and the special challenges we face, yet, it connects us all through a common thread that, at heart, we never really grow old. We are still that same soul inside, we are simply growing wiser and enjoying life more. I love every minute of this show, it makes me laugh, cry and feel really good inside. There is hope for joy, love and new beginnings at any age-fantastic job here by all!
