”Unless the actresses get their way, expect season four to follow the usual pattern of being released in the spring.
In this so-called golden age of TV, where shows like can be nominated for best comedy awards, it may seem a bit pointless to argue whether a show, especially a streaming one, is a comedy or drama–the lines have already been blurred.
But the big swings between light-hearted comedy and life-or-death drama can still be a little jarring.
Lily Tomlin has said that she would like to see “at least two [seasons] a year” going forward.
The 77-year-old told Indie Wire: “Considering our age, I think we should convince Ted [Sarandos, Netflix boss] to do two seasons a year.”Jane Fonda, 79, said: “I wish that they could sparse them out more, so we didn’t have to wait so long.”Tomlin added: “I love that that was a release in the press, they said: ‘Grace and Frankie’ has been renewed for a second season.’ “And then shortly after they renewed it for a third and they said ’considering the leads’ age’ – they felt like it was expedient!
This season opens with a hilarious, absurd scene where a bunch of animated dildos chase Frankie down the beach, so the writers definitely aren’t afraid to go broad with comedy.
It’s also not afraid to discuss the very real fears of the elderly, as in episode 12, Frankie learns that she’s susceptible to potentially fatal strokes after a medical scare.
Sam Waterston, Martin Sheen, Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, June Diane Raphael, and Baron Vaughn co-star in supporting roles.
It premiered on Netflix on May 8, 2015, with all 13 episodes of the first season released simultaneously.
While Grace and Frankie’s business prospered, their friendship broke down when Frankie was asked to move to Sante Fe, New Mexico with her boyfriend Jacob.
In a shock turn of events, Frankie suffered a minor stroke and was warned that a more serious incident is inevitable.
The way the show addresses aging isn’t always this serious.
