Grace And Frankie has been renewed for Season 4 at Netflix and will be aired in 2018. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin play the role of two older women who have to start over after their husbands fall in love with each other.
The new season also guest stars, Lisa Kudrow as Sheree, Grace’s longtime manicurist. Creator Marta Kauffman mentioned during an ATX Television Festival panel that season 4 will be “really about the women coming to terms with age, coming to terms with how old they are, where their bodies are at this point, where their minds are at this point and what does that imply, what does that mean?”
We’ve cast a lot of people older than Grace and Frankie, significantly older,” said casting director Tracy Lilienfield. “These are people that don’t often get a chance to audition, let alone get a job, and they have stories to tell.”
Kauffman also mentioned that she has enjoyed working with the freedom of the streaming service. “The greatest advantage is you are not arbitrarily forced into a structure. What’s fantastic about something like Netflix is you can take as much time as you need to tell your story and the story then tells us what the structure is.”
We can’t wait to see how the addition of Sheree (Lisa Kudrow) affects Grace and Frankie’s dynamic and volatile friendship. Season 4 can’t come soon enough.
