Grace and Frankie is confirmed and on the way to Netflix likely in 2019. If you’re looking for everything regarding the upcoming season of the Netflix comedy, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything we know about season 5 of Grace and Frankie.

Season 4 has been the highest ranked season so far, with the final episode, in particular, receiving rave reviews. The series sees Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin return in the comedy unlike any other. The basic premise of the show is that Grace and Frankie have to find new lives after their husbands confess their love for each other. Throughout the seasons we’ve seen plenty of guest stars which notably included Lisa Kudrow for season 4.

Grace and Frankie Season 5 Renewal Status

Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: 02/15/2018)

There was never any doubt surrounding the show’s future and it was confirmed a month after season 4 landed on Netflix by the shows official channels.

What will happen in season 5?

The final episode didn’t really give us too many indications as to whether there’ll be a new season. Grace and Frankie were parent trapped for the final episode and ultimately found out their home on the beach was being sold. Beyond that, Robert and Sol had finally injected much-needed energy into their relationship. The ending doesn’t leave you with a ton of questions hanging but there’s certainly plenty of loose ends to wrap up.

Awards for Grace & Frankie Season 4

The Emmies have been massive for Netflix this year and “Grace and Frankie” has been included in the honours.

The show is up for multiple awards for the Emmies including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Contemporary Costumes and Outstanding Production Design.

Will Lisa Kudrow be back for season 5?

To keep the show fresh, Grace and Frankie cast Lisa Kudrow in season 4 who was a welcome addition. The Friends star at this point in time doesn’t seem to be reappearing as she’s yet to appear in the casting for any of the 12 new episodes. Most of the casting hasn’t been announced so it could be the case that she does appear it’s just not confirmed.

Let’s rewind to see how we got to season 4. The series first came to Netflix in May 2015 after being announced several months before it. Season 2 and 3 were both announced throughout 2015.
