Grace and Frankie is a hilarious show which revolves around two women who used to absolutely dislike each other but they are soon hit with reality when their husbands reveal that they are gay and in love. Their husbands leave and the women have to live with each other. The show has received praises from critics and has proven to be an award player for Netflix, bagging several awards and nominations.
The fifth season of the show was made available on Netflix on January 18 and was received very well by the fans. The season followed the (Warning: Spoilers Ahead) struggles faced by Robert to adjust in the gay community. Grace comes in terms with her inner romantic and Frankie decides to do something for herself while Sol gets a dog. But soon, things mess up and take an incredible twist! Have you watched it yet?
The chemistry of Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda and Grammy recipient Lily Tomlin is remarkable and the two prestigious actresses charmingly keep the audience glued to their screens. The show, however, recently got some controversial attention when the star of the show Lily Tomlin revealed that she was getting paid the same amount as her ex-husband in the show.
The two actresses raised the issue of unequal pay and Lily said, "the show is not 'Sol and Robert', it's 'Grace and Frankie" which sparked major controversy. “I wasn’t so impressed with our paycheck when I found out Sam and Martin made the same amount. I thought they were like an adjunct. Then I found out they’re in almost every script," she told New York Times but when the interview received a lot of heat, the two actresses took their statements back.
Martha Kauffman, co-creator of the show, revealed that she is planning to run the show as long as Lily and Jane are willing to act in it. “Every season, it becomes more and more special, because you know you have fewer and fewer left.“ When asked if she'd do more seasons, she said, "I’d probably tell them, ‘Let’s do it as long as it’s still comfortable for Jane and Lily." Who's excited to watch Grace and Frankie's sixth season?
