Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and the rest of the cast will return for the final season.
Fonda and Tomlin spoke about the news of the final season:
“We are both delighted and heartbroken that Grace and Frankie will be back for its seventh, though final, season. 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.”
Netflix’s VP of Original Series, Cindy Holland; commented:
“Since its premiere in 2015, Grace and Frankie has expertly and hilariously demystified the experience of growing older and given a voice to the fastest-growing segment of our population. Jane, Lily, Sam, and Martin have become role models for fans that span generations around the world, and we are so proud to have been a part of the show’s journey from day one. A special thanks to Marta, Howard, and the team at Skydance, who have been superb partners every step of the way.”
Dana Golberg, the Chief Content Officer at Skydance; also commented:
“David, Marcy and I, along with the entire team at Skydance couldn’t be prouder to have Grace and Frankie launch our television division. We are thankful to our partners at Netflix who stepped up to make a show for people who didn’t see themselves on television. Seven seasons later, Grace and Frankie has captured the zeitgeist and audiences of all ages thanks to the brilliant vision of Marta Kaufmann and Howard Morris and the incredible talent of our cast led by legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.”
