We’re equally thrilled and heartbroken that grace & Frankie’ will probably be back for its seventh, however final, season. We’re so thankful that our show has been in a position to deal with issues that have connected to our grand generation. And their kids, and amazingly, their kids as well! We’ll miss these two old gals, Grace and Frankie, as much as most of the fans will, but we will still be around. We’ve outlasted so many things-just hope we do not outlast the world.
Here’s what we know so far about the season of Grace and Frankie.
As of now, there are absolutely no official release date for Grace and Frankie season 7. Production had already started on the new season when it was put on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year. That being said, it’s expected to be released sometime in 2021.
Variety reports that season 7 will have a total of 16 episodes.
Series creator Marta Kauffman told Good Housekeeping that season 7 will keep fans on their toes, stating:
I can not say too much, but we are likely to be dealing with Robert, Sol, Grace, and Frankie in a way we have not seen before.
On the other hand, the series will continue to stick to its core values. Kauffman added:
You understand, my expectation is that [the show] inspires people to realize that simply because one stage of your life ends does not imply that another one does not start –and it can be better compared to the previous phases. I hope people recognize they’re vibrant, and sensual, and with a good woman buddy, you are able to do anything.
