Netflix's ‘Grace and Frankie’ Season 7: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the final season
Six years and still counting, Grace Hanson and Lily Tomlin have brought us a whole new perspective to living and enjoying every aspect of life, even if you are in your sunset years. And along the way, they have inspired and influenced us to take leaps of faith, start a new venture, and fall in love with yourself all over again! After gaining immense popularity among its audience, the hit comedy series is coming back for its final season and we can’t wait to see what happens in Grace and Frankie’s life.
‘Grace and Frankie’ Season 7 will have 16 episodes and will drop together on Netflix, sometime in early 2021. The network has not released its final air date yet. So, stay tuned while we bring you the latest updates and all information on the show’s release.
Grace Hanson and Frankie Bergstein started their life all over again when their respective husbands came out and declared their love for each other. With a 40-year marriage down the drain, the ladies started living together, much to their disappointment with each other. After a lot of hiccups initially, they became the closest friends, and then, business partners, coming up with a solution for women their age, one innovation at a time. Over the last six years, a lot happened in their lives and they evolved, as individuals and as friends, proving that there’s no limit to living life, queen size, at any age!
Here are the quick highlights of Season 1-6
Robert Hanson and Sol Bergstein move out of their homes, get married, and start facing the struggles of an older gay couple.
Grace and Frankie start their first business venture called Vybrant, a vibrator brand for older women. The business takes off well but eventually sees a downslide.
The ladies lose their best friend, which puts their lives in perspective. On the other hand, both Robert and Sol have a major health scare, which makes them reevaluate their lifestyle.
Frankie starts dating her neighbor, tries to move to Santa Fe but breaks up eventually and comes back to Grace.
Grace falls in love with a younger man and gets married, without informing Frankie, which leads to a series of misunderstandings and challenges between the women.
Grace has a bad bathroom experience that brings the friends back together and they start their next business venture — Rise Up (hydraulic toilets for senior adults).
Grace’s new husband, Nick gets arrested in a money scam and is under arrest. Ergo, she goes back to the beach house to live with Frankie.
Taking off from where they left in Season 6, the upcoming final season of ‘Grace and Frankie’ will see the women back to where they started. Inferring from the last episode of Season 6, it is most likely that Robert and Sol will want to stay at the beach house too since their house got flooded. This will disrupt Grace and Frankie’s life together, as they try to build on their new business and work on the friendship which got strained after Grace’s marriage to Nick. The new season will most likely see how Grace and Frankie will stick around for each other despite all the ups and downs and distractions around.
