Grace and Frankie”: Netflix

The small screen’s most delightful odd couple is staying put. Less than one month after “Grace and Frankie’s” fourth season dropped comes word that the Netflix series has been renewed for Season 5.

Created and executive produced by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, the series centers on Grace (Fonda), a high-strung retired cosmetics mogul, and Frankie, a hippie art teacher. The two form an unlikely friendship after their husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) drop a bombshell, announcing that they’re in love and plan to marry each other.

Season 4 concluded with Grace and Frankie moving into an assisted living community despite their reservations. While the show offers plenty of laughs, it’s also one of the rare opportunities to see a nuanced depiction of aging in the media.

[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for the season finale of “Grace and Frankie” Season 4.]
