Grace and Frankie: on Netflix underrated in the UK?

Grace and Frankie: on Netflix seems to be one of those successful US comedies that failed to catch on with UK audiences. That’s a pity because it’s very good and very funny.

With the seventh and final season, Grace & Frankie becomes Netflix’s longest-running original series. The comedy is set to finish with a record 94 episodes. That’s a lot of catching up to do for Brits but give it a try – be a change from watching repeats of Friends or OFAH.

The characters Grace and Frankie, played by Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, respectively, promise “ the best is yet to come” in the new trailer for the final episodes of their comedy, which drop April 29. But what has gone before, is pretty good.

The logline for the final season reads: “Seven years ago, Grace and Frankie’s lives turned upside down when their longtime husbands left them for… each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie formed an unlikely and unbreakable bond as they faced uncertain futures head-on, and hand-in-hand. They’ve laughed together, cried together, did shrooms together, and twice-over became successful entrepreneurs together. A history-making 94 episodes later, Grace and Frankie continue to show themselves, their families, and their fans what it means to live life to the fullest, fearlessly and unapologetically. Here’s to seven seasons of laughs, tears, mood-enhancers, and good vibes. And, as Grace and Frankie would say, fuck it. This may be their final chapter, but they’re just getting started.”
