GREAT news for followers of the popular television series Grace and Frankie, starring 81-year-old Jane Fonda and 79-year-old Lily Tomlin – the eagerly anticipated fifth season of the hit show returns to Netflix on January 18.

The new series furthers the adventures of two unlikely, elderly friends brought together after their husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) announce that they are in love with each other and plan to get married

For as long as they can recall, Grace and Frankie have been rivals. Now, with everything around the women coming apart, the only thing they can really rely on is each other.

The new season of the show introduces drag queen supreme RuPaul (as a quick-witted character called Benjamin Le Day), as well as a supporting cast including Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, June Diane Raphael and Baron Vaughn.

Season five will pick up where season four left off – with Grace and Frankie convinced by their children to move into an “assisted living” facility and the surprise sale of Grace and Frankie’s beloved beach house.

Grace and Frankie has received five Primetime Emmy Award nominations for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a TV series musical or comedy.
