Who could deny the fact that Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) together make for an entertaining watch? One can’t blame the fans that are eager to know what season 7 of Grace and Frankie—an American TV show that revolves around the lives of two middle-aged women will bring with it.

So as you stream the latest episode, we’re here to reveal all that we know about the next and sadly the last leg of Grace and Frankie.
Is it confirmed that the Season 7 of Grace and Frankie will be the last?
Sadly, yes. The actors in 2019 had opened up about the same saying that the seventh season would be show’s final installment. Fonda and Tomlin even issued a heartfelt joint statement.
“We are both delighted and heartbroken that ‘Grace & 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.”
Plot of Season 7: What will happen in the final leg?
About a month ago, in a conversation with an online portal (Good Housekeeping), Kauffman revealed that she and her team are yet to begin writing the season 7. It is clear that even the people behind the scenes are unaware of what will become of the characters. However she was able to offer some vague details through the interaction.
“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,” Kauffmann revealed.
It’s hard to state what she must have meant here but she also said, “You know, my hope is that (the show) inspires people to realize that just because one phase of your life ends doesn’t mean that another one doesn’t begin—and it can be better than the previous phases. I hope people realize they are vibrant, and sexual, and with a good woman friend, you can do anything.”
That just sums up in a nutshell why exactly fans fell in-love with Grace and Frankie in the first place. Needless to say, that’s also why we’re already demanding details about a Season 7 when most of us haven’t even finished watching the sixth.
Cast of the Season 7: Who can we expect returning in the finale?
It’s hard to imagine the show be the same without Coyote and Bud, right? It is revealed that the seven main members of the cast will definitely reprise their roles for the show’s final season in the seventh installment of Grace and Frankie and we wouldn’t have it any other way. For the ones who need a quick refresher, here are they are below:
Jane Fonda as Grace and Lily Tomlin as Frankie. Meanwhile, Sam Waterston will play Sol and Martin Sheen will be seen as Robert. Baron Vaughn will portray Bud, Ethan Embry as Coyote and June Diane Raphael will play Brianna while Brooklyn Decker will be seen as Mallory.
When will Grace and Frankie Season 7 premiere?
Soon after the season 6 of Grace and Frankie was available to stream on Netflix, production and filming of season 7 began on January 27th, 2020. The new episodes are said to have been filmed in Los Angeles and the final season of Grace and Frankie will feature 16 episodes. With this the TV comedy will become the oldest original Netflix series to date and will close with 94 episodes total.
However, given the current covid-19 pandemic, production of most show in corona virus affected countries has halted. Owing to the current global fate, it’s hard to lay a finger on any release date for the show or confirm when the production can continue for its new season.
From what appears it is highly likely that fans will have to wait for a release date as it is expected to be an unknown date. But, viewers can still hope for the final season to hit our screens on 2021.
