After season 6 finale left Grace and Frankie jaw-dropped, every fan is breathlessly awaiting next season. Scroll down to find out the release date of Grace and Frankie Season 7 and plot hint teased by Kauffman.
Why you can’t miss Grace and Frankie
Wanna laugh on “unrealistic” oldies jokes? The show isn’t for you, skip it. Grace and Frankie won’t offer you that edginess and over the top lol moments but it is a 100 percent real and authentic dramedy focusing on modern old age that either Hollywood ignores or brand it as a sob story. Packed with vibrators, toilet jokes and seasoned actors in Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, the show is funny but also has so much depth and heart.
About the show:
Finding out in the pilot episode that their husbands are not just business partners but Gay partners for the last twenty years, the frenemies – Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) are forced to sail in their post-sixties together. While their husbands go on their happily-ever-after journey, the duo deal with cruel revelations in old age as well as “the old age” itself.
Through the real struggles of glamorous Grace and bohemian Frankie, especially in seeking sexual pleasures (menopause, erectile dysfunction, among others), the show doesn’t fail to find humor but also remain honest to the tragedy of it.
Showmaker Kauffman reveals Grace and Frankie season 7 plot
Grace and Frankie, the brainchild of Marta Kauffman, who also famously co-created the 90’s hit series Friends, wanted to explore aging and “coming out too-late” with seasoned actor-duo Fonda and Tomlin.
Grappling with failed marriages and bizarre old age issues through 6 seasons, the unlikely duo of cosmetic mogul Grace and hippie-artist Frankie are now closer than ever. Their chemistry is so palpable that many fans are hoping that the title duo ends up as an actual couple.
According to Screenrant , Kauffman’s own daughter wants Grace and Frankie to get together romantically.
While the maker is keenly aware about fans’ demand, she is not convinced to end Grace and Frankie season 7 on this note.
She told the Los Angeles Times: “The show is about these two women. I think it’s no surprise that the audience wants them to be together, ultimately. I think making them a [romantic] couple is disingenuous. But they are a different kind of couple. They are best friends. They belong together. And I think there is something wonderful about finding that person who you want to be with in life.”
Perhaps, we now know Grace and Frankie season 7 will not end with Grace and Frankie ending up together.
