The oldest Netflix sitcom “Grace and Frankie” is sadly coming to an end with the release of its 7th installment. The American TV series was created back in 2014 by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris. And over the course of 6 seasons, it has picked up many exceptional storylines. Moreover, the show has one of the most enthusiastic fandoms, which were left heartbroken after the discontinuation news got announced. But what are the reasons behind the cancelation of the show? And when will Grace and Frankie Season 7 release on Netflix?
Since then, the 6th installment ended on a major cliffhanger, and fans have been eager to learn about the following season. But the production had to be halted due to the pandemic. Because the titular actors are all over the age of 80, extra precautions had to be taken to ensure they don’t contract the virus, which delayed the 7th season.
The show has Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in the lead, who get close after their husbands betray them. Both women then decide to move in together and face the challenges by their sides. And in the entire 6 seasons, they navigate the different paths of life. It gives a very realistic view of old age and portrays the older generation as equally interesting. In simple words, it breaks the common stereotypes surrounding older people.
Gracie And Frankie Season 7 is going to be an emotional ride for the viewers. With that being said, below, you’ll find all the latest updates regarding the upcoming 7th season. So, let’s dive right into it!
Grace And Frankie Season 7 Release Date
The 7th season will comprise 16 episodes. And this week, Netflix surprised the viewers by dropping the first 4 episodes from the last season quite early. Mainly because their filming was completed without being disturbed, but what about the rest of the 12 episodes?
There is no word on their production as of March of 2021. The shooting had to be stopped due to the rise in covid cases. But recently, there were rumors that the showrunners have continued with the filming. However, this is not confirmed so far. And who knows, maybe Netflix will similarly drop the next episodes!
The show’s main protagonists are expected to reprise their old roles because the 6th season did not end conclusively. The upcoming installment will also explore the same storyline, hence the same cast.
Michael Charles Roman (as Adam) and Cora Vander Broek (as Karen Fischer) are confirmed to feature in Grace and Frankie Season 7! The other main cast members include:
- Jane Fonda as Grace Hanson
- Lily Tomlin as Frances “Frankie” Bergstein
- Martin Sheen as Robert Hanson
- Sam Waterston as Sol Bergstein
- Brooklyn Decker as Mallory Hanson
- Ethan Embry as Coyote Bergstein
- June Diane Raphael as Brianna Hanson

The legendary Dolly Parton will make a cameo appearance in the upcoming season. The singer is quite excited about her role in the show:
“I have been trying to do Grace and Frankie for years. We have been trying to write me in somehow, so when it is safe actually to do production, I will probably get around to doing that.”
Considering that Grace and Frankie Season 7 is the concluding chapter of the franchise, there might be some other interesting guest appearances. So, watch out!
Grace And Frankie Season 7 Plot
Netflix has not announced the official plot synopsis for the 7th iteration so far. But we can always assume the plot is based on the finale of the preceding season.
The ladies got a jackpot at the end of the 6th season when they discovered the heaps of cash hidden in the penthouse sofa of Nick. They somehow managed to slip past the ruthless FBI agents, but what if they get caught in the upcoming season? Will they spend the rest of their lives in prison?
Grace and Frankie finally have the money that they needed to kick start their Toilet project. And at the big age of 81, Grace finally unveiled what she wants to do in her life! But now the question is will she live to see her dreams come true?
Moreover, while the duo suffers from hiding the cash, their ex-husbands move in with them because they lost their home to a fraudulent donation deal. It will be quite funny to see the ex-couples live under one roof. Well, that means the upcoming season will be full of drama!
Grace And Frankie Season 7 Trailer
Strangely there is no trailer for Grace and Frankie Season 7, but the first 4 episodes can be streamed on Netflix. This is better than a 2-minute long trailer, so watch it before you miss out!
