Grace and Frankie is an American comedy series, which airs primarily on Netflix. The original series stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in these title roles of Grace and Frankie. The series focuses on these two characters, who together form an unlikely friendship after they learn that their husbands are in love with each other and have secret plans of getting married to one another. The second season of the show premiered on May 6th, 2016. Back in December of 2015, Netflix announced that the show would be renewed for a third season. The official release date for the third season has not been released yet.

Who is the crew behind the production of the show?

Marta Kauffman and Howard J Morris create the comedy series. Executive Producers of the show include Marta Kauffman, Howard J Morris, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Paula Weinstein, Dana Goldberg, DavidElison, and Marcy Ross. The editor of the series is Michael Jablow. The production company behind the series is Skydance Television and Okay Goodnight.

What is the show about?

As you can imagine by the title of the series, the two main characters are GF. Grace is a “retired cosmetics mogul” while Frankie is a “hippie art teacher”. The two leading ladies both have husbands who work as successful divorce lawyers in San Diego. Somewhere along the way, the two gentlemen fall in love with each other and decide that they are going to marry one another. Before this love affair occurred, neither of the women really liked each other, but they come to be good friends once they are fully forced in to each other’s lives.

How long is each episode of the show?

The approximate running time of each episode is 25 to 32 minutes.

How has the show been received thus far?

The show has received mixed reviews thus far. The show has been applauded for its “stellar casting” but has been critiqued on a “cliché storyline” as well as “sloppy dialogue”. However, despite mixed reviews, the show was renewed for a third season before the second one even premiered. The second season received better reviews than the first season did. There has also been some controversy outside of the show regarding the salaries of the actors working on the show and the discrepancies between the incomes of the males’ stars versus the female stars. It has certainly sparked much conversation about pay inequality.

What can we expect to see in the third season?

We already know for a fact that #GraceFrankie will be coming back for a third season. At the end of the second season, we saw #GF go in to business together making vibrators even though it is absolutely disturbing to their children. They are also once again faced with a situation where they must deal with the “incompetence of their ex-husbands”. What does this mean for the season three? Will their vibrator making business turn out to be a successful endeavor? Will their ex-husbands continue to haunt their lives? Will their friend Babe survive throughout the season after receiving her cancer diagnosis? What other

A spoiler alert could have been used for describing season 2. LOVE THIS SHOW. No matter what the critics say I feel every episode was good. If it was cliche and campy then that what I like. All acting is great. At first seeing Sam Waterson I didn’t think the show with work for me. I’m a great fan of original law and order. Amazed at how quickly I saw Sam Waterson as Sol.

I love this show! It is true that it’s not written as well as some of the newer stuff out there but the topics are relevant, the fun is relevant and I get the messages. I just wish there were two seasons a year instead of one. Normally there is one in the fall and one in the spring. I’m bummed that I have to wait til May 2017. In the meantime I just started watching “House of Cards”. You can’t watch too much of that at one time, it’s jading, as good as it is. I want more episodes of Grace and Frankie! I need to laugh!

Love love love… I started watching this show over the summer so I had season 1 and 2 to watch and I couldn’t put it down I watched it all in about a week. I am super excited for season 3. I can NOT wait. Jane Fanda is awesome in this show. She is one of my favorite actresses. And Lily Tomlin is super funny they bring the best out in each other in this show for sure. ❤️

We tried Netflix on a trial basis because there is nothing good to watch on regular tv. Grace and Frankie is the first and only thing we watched and finished both episodes in about a week and I can’t believe the 3rd season isn’t coming out until next May and I really can’t believe it appears from what I have read elsewhere that the male characters, who aren’t nearly as good as Lilly or Jane are paid more. My god I thought at least Jane Fonda, one of the best actresses of our time and Lilly Tomlin, probably the funniest person of her generation who is proving to be an exceptional actress have proven no matter what their gender that they are carrying the show and are definitely worth more money than the boys. I was at least hoping the old boys club was dead in the entertainment industry. This is the funniest and most heartwarming show I have seen since I can remember. Please release season 3 sooner.

I love the show!!!! Actually, I have binged watched each season and was so disappointed when it was over. Can’t wait till Season 3! I’m disappointed to hear the rumor that the male actors are paid more. Jane and Lilly are my main reason for watching. The men are necessary props to make the show work. To me their acting feels contrived, not natural…especially Martin Sheen. Can’t wait for season 3! (Oh, did I say that already? lol)

Could you please , PLEASE, crank these out faster. i just discovered this show and binge watched them all over the weekend…NOW I’m suffering with drawl.
Well written and the characters are wonderful and have such depth, the more you watch the more you see layers of each of them. Please keep them coming and a bit faster if possible. I can’t remember when I have enjoyed a show so much.

Love the series!! I did the “binge” watching and finished seasons 1 & 2 in 2 sittings. The casting was superb – in my humble opinion – from the lead characters to the kids, friends, and other love interests. I adored the characters, story line, the beach – ok. Everyone and everything. I’m thrilled to learn that there will be a season 3, and if it’s as good as 1&2, I’ll be hoping for season 4!!!

My mother and I love this show! We watched season 1 and 2 in 4 days. We couldn’t stop watching it. We laugh ’till we cry! The relationship between Grace and Frankie is what makes the show. It is too long in between the seasons though.

Funny yet done with a sense of the character’s heartfelt emotions. Some real issues dealt with humorously.
Love the cast except for Martin Sheen – he isn’t believable to me in this role. Just my opinion. Looking forward to season 3.

My best friend introduced me to Frankie and Grace. We did a all-nighter and watched the first two seasons and I love both their personalities. The men are great in their roles as well. I cannot wait for Season 3 and another marathon of TV.
