What’s it about
For as long as they can recall, Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) have been at odds with each other. But their relationship suddenly changes when they learn that their husbands, Bob (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston), have fallen in love and asked for divorces – so they can marry one another!
After learning their ex-husbands plan to marry one another, lifelong rivals Grace and Frankie have bonded in an uneasy friendship. The second season of this acclaimed comedy series brings more laughs and surprises as Grace and Frankie tackle the challenges of family and relationships – while driving each other crazy on a regular basis!
Grace and Frankie, now in its third season, is proof positive that getting older doesn¡¯t have to be joyless. Here ex-wives Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) hit the reset button on life when their two husbands, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) reveal they¡¯ve been having an affair for 20 years. The Netflix show, which returned on Friday, embraces the idea that even at 70 years old, you can still find new ways to reinvent yourself.
Season 4 reframes a question of maturity into one of capability, as Grace and Frankie stare down the barrel of assisted living. When does a funny story become sad? Typically in television, this kind of question is framed around arrested development: A grown man is still acting like he¡¯s in college, and certain events force him to look himself in the mirror and say, ¡°Getting that drunk and acting that dumb isn¡¯t funny anymore. It¡¯s sad.¡±
