It’s safe to say that the fifth season was a rollercoaster full of emotional moments that make you cry tears of joy and sadness alike. That’s the beauty of this amazing show that breaks stereotypes of old age. This season Frankie and Grace ‘didn’t give a fuck’ and did essentially whatever they wanted! We saw the two escape their retirement house with a golf cart and blowtorch. Since, Grace and Frankie season 5 finale fans are eagerly waiting for any news on the their sixth season. So what do we know so far?
Grace and Frankie Season 6 Already Confirmed!
Ahead of its 5th season premiere, Grace and Frankie season 6 was already renewed by Netflix. And why wouldn’t it? It’s about a beautiful friendship between two women played by Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda who find comfort in each other’s company when their respective on-screen husbands Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen leave them for each other.
Expected Grace and Frankie Season 6 Release Date
The Netflix show, created by the Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, have had an odd schedule ever since it’s first season premiere released in 2015. The first season came out on May 2015, and it’s second season came out a year later in May as well. However, the third season was released in March of 2017. Then it surprised us again by giving us Grace and Frankie season 4 in January of 2018.
Following this pattern, season 5 came in January of this year 2019. If the show runners keep this up, we can expect Grace and Frankie Season 6’s release date to to arrive in January of 2020. It takes almost a year for production and sources say it’s already being done. But, the show could take a few more months as the main cast is busy doing some other movie projects. Lily Tomlin is busy doing a movie project The Road Home, Martin Sheen is occupied with filming The Devil Has a Name and Princess of the Row. And June Diane Raphael is busy with finishing Flarsky in 2019. So let’s see how long it takes for us to get another season of the show.
Quick Spoiler Filled Recap of Grace and Frankie Season 5
The diverse characters of the show allows for interesting story lines to develop as we move along the show. Just this season we saw Grace and Frankie’s friendship go through a trying time when Frankie (Lily Tomlin) was searching for more meaning in her life. There was also a hilarious moment when Frankie’s highness and flakiness lands her in a situation where she has to come up with 50,000 donuts and vibrators after a promotional stunt for their vibrator business goes wrong. Ultimately, in the finale we see the two patch things before the surprise marriage of Grace (Jane Fonda) with Nick (Peter Gallagher) shocks Frankie.
Meanwhile, Sol and Robert are having trouble in paradise of their own when Robert’s plan of being Don Quixote in the new play never come to life and Sol becomes more assertive. The two go through an interesting transformation as well.
The kids have crazy adventures of their own. We see Bud (Baron Vaughn) and Allison (Lindsey Kraft) marry each other in a beautiful ceremony. And Coyote (Ethan Embry) meets his half-brother on the show. Meanwhile, Brianna (June Diane Raphael) has to deal with the fact that Barry’s lesbian friend asked him to be a sperm donor and Mallory (Brooklyn Decker) finally starts to date again.
Possible Plot Lines of Grace and Frankie Season 6
Grace and Frankie Season 6 could go on a million different directions. Grace (Jane Fonda) and Nick’s marriage could be a focal point in the upcoming season. It will certainly strain the 5 year long friendship of the two women. It would be interesting to see how the show runners tackle that. Perhaps, Frankie finds a new beau in life?
Sol and Robert’s relationship had a positive conclusion in the season 5 finale so their story could literally go in any direction. Maybe, Robert would try to pursue acting more seriously and Sol would adopt more dogs.
Bud and Allison are married as well, so their new relationship can be a source for some entertainment too! Brianna and Barry would have something entirely new to experience when Barry’s sperm will impregnate their lesbian friend. And Mallory’s new boyfriend Dan (Josh Cooke), who is also her kids’ school principal certainly has the potential to be a recurring character in the show.
There’s also the Vibrator business of the Grace and Frankie that isn’t growing as of yet.
