Grace and Frankie: Renewed by Netflix for Season 2

at . Comments

The friendship between Grace and Frankie won't be dissolving any time soon.

Netflix has picked up the series for a second season.

The Netflix original, created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, features Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as women who are forced to lean on each other when their husbands come out as gay and run away together.

New episodes of the light-hearted drama will be released in 2016.

“Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix,” Kauffman said. “Because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, ‘We’d like to do a season two.’

"So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted [Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer] and Miley to thank.”
