'Grace and Frankie' Renewed for Season 6 on Netflix
"Grace and Frankie" are sticking together for the foreseeable future: Netflix has renewed the celebrated comedy series for a sixth season.
The streaming service announced the news on Tuesday, just days before the premiere of season five, which is slated for later this week.
"Grace and Frankie" stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as the titular women. The pair begin the series as frenemies, but ultimately band together after their husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, respectively) announce that they're gay, and leave their wives for each other.
The sitcom, co-created by "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman, has been a hit with fans and critics alike, earning countless accolades since its 2015 debut, and racking up dozens of nominations from the Emmys, Golden Globes, SAG Awards, WGA Awards, and GLAAD Media Awards, among many others. Its two most recent seasons have scored the rare 100 percent fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes.
There's no word yet on how many episodes will be featured in season six, but it's expected to debut sometime in 2020. Season five of the sitcom drops on Netflix this Friday, January 18.
