‘Grace and Frankie’ Season 6 just dropped earlier this year, but we’re already anxiously awaiting season 7. The show which has been confirmed for a seventh and final season since last fall is having trouble filming the upcoming season.
- When will the filming of season 7 resume? When is season 7 coming to Netflix?
- What will season 7 be about? The cast for season 7 of ‘Grace and Frankie’.
- When did season 6 leave us?
While we’ve been thinking about how we’ll say goodbye to our favourite Netflix ladies, ever since we first heard the news of the show being axed, the filming of the seventh season of the comedy series, ‘Grace and Frankie’, has been halted. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
When will filming of season 7 resume?
The heartfelt comedy show’s filming has been halted owing to health and safety reasons. The decision, which came after the show wrapped production for the day, was confirmed by series producer Skydance Television.
In a statement to an entertainment portal, the company said, “To ensure the health and safety of our cast and crew, Skydance has temporarily suspended filming for ‘Grace and Frankie’, the series”. So far, there’s no date set to resume production of the upcoming season. However, it’s reported that the producers are monitoring the situation daily and the show will be back on its feet soon.
When is season 7 coming to Netflix?
As for now, we know that season 7 of the show is confirmed. However, we don’t know when the show will premiere. Recalling how each of the show’s previous seasons have come out about a year apart from one other, it seems fit to us that we’ll see season 7 arrive in early 2021, if not sooner.
What will season 7 be about?
Currently, a lot is still under wraps when it comes to season 7. But in a recent interview with a leading magazine, showrunner Marta Kauffman hinted that the upcoming season will be different than what we’ve seen in the show so far.
She said, “In terms of season 7, I can’t say too much, but we’re going to be dealing with Robert, Sol, Grace, and Frankie in a way in that we haven’t seen before”.
We know that it doesn’t say much about the plot but with the filming having taken a backseat, it’s unlikely that the makers will be dropping any clues anytime soon. Guess, we’ll just have to wait it out.
Cast for season 7 of ‘Grace and Frankie’
Fans can expect to see all the main characters to return in the new season. Jane Fonda will continue to star as Grace Skolka while Lily Tomlin will be seen as Frances “Frankie” Bergstein. Meanwhile, Sam Waterston will play Sol Bergstein (Frankie’s ex-husband), and Martin Sheen will star as Robert Hanson (Grace’s ex-husband).
In addition, Brooklyn Decker will star as Mallory Hanson along with Ethan Embry as Coyote Bergstein, June Diane Raphael as Brianna Hanson, and Baron Vaughn as Nwabudike “Bud” Bergstein.
Where did season 6 leave us?
The show is a successful and long-running heartfelt comedy. However, season 6 deviated a little from this track and shocked fans with a plot that introduced more permanent changes.
The most-notable change it brought along was Grace’s marriage to business tycoon Nick. Following which, she moves in to be with her husband and leaves the beach house. Meanwhile, both Grace and Frankie are working hard to launch their latest product “Rise Up”, which is sort of a hydraulic toilet that helps senior citizens to use the toilet with minimal effort.
Meanwhile, Sol survives a health scare and finds himself stuck in the midst of an ongoing financial battle with Robert. On the other hand, Brianna is in trouble and has disputes with Barry while Bud is in the midst of his own married life.
The events in the season lead the finale to a major cliffhanger. As Nick gets busted by the FBI for fraud, Grace and Frankie find a pile of cash that could launch their product “Rise Up”.
As mentioned before, season 7 will tackle these storylines differently as it promises to be very different from the rest of the show.
