Netflix’s Grace and Frankie taught us a lot of things – mainly how cute older gay couples are and how funny Lilly Tomlin still is. Now the show is coming back for a second season and we are pumped. Check out details via Netflix below, and the trailer below that:
In Grace and Frankie, Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”) star as two women whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie form an unlikely and unbreakable bond and face their uncertain futures head-on, hand-in-hand. Together with their ex-husbands and children, they discover the true definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.
From executive producers Marta Kauffman (“Friends”) and Howard J. Morris (“Home Improvement”), the hilarious and heartbreaking comedy returns for a second season with new adventures and challenges for the newly-formed clan. Their unconventional bonds are tested by health scares, business ventures, harmful secrets, and new romantic relationships. Grace and Frankie learn some of life’s most difficult lessons in their golden years and come to cherish each other despite their differences. The series also stars Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, along with Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, Baron Vaughn and June Diane Raphael.
Director Vikram Gandhi (Kumaré, HBO’s “Vice”), a Columbia University alumni, approached fellow alum Adam Mansbach (author of “Go the F**k to Sleep”) to help tell this origin story, and from that collaboration Mansbach penned the script.
