Plot Synopsis

In this half-hour comedy series, Grace and Frankie are two women whose lives are turned upside down -- and permanently intertwined -- when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Elegant, proper Grace and freewheeling, eccentric Frankie aren't friends, even though their husbands Robert and Sol have been law partners for decades. The two women start to bond in ways they never expected, and they help each other deal with the aftermath of their messy divorces and the effects they have on their equally frazzled children. Together, they must face starting over in their 70s in a 21st century world, including when Grace and Frankie decide to go back to work. On Friday, May 8, 2015 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released all 13 episodes of GRACE AND FRANKIE's first season.

Season 3 of GRACE AND FRANKIE premiered on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire 13-episode third season. According to creator Marta Kauffman in an interview with, the third season deals with Grace and Frankie "living their lives and how do you live your life in the aftermath of all this, and included in that is the idea of these women becoming self-determined women in their late 70s." Marta continued that the third season takes viewers into "the truth of aging in the world and how the world looks at you, including in business. How do you deal with the contemporary world when you aren't used to things like disruptors and tech companies and starting business and getting a loan at this age."

Netflix released the 13-episode fourth season of GRACE AND FRANKIE on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. Lisa Kudrow joins the cast for the new season as Sheree, Grace's longtime manicurist -- and new lodger -- whose newfound friendship threatens to drive a wedge between Grace and Frankie.
