It’s only been online a couple of weeks, but Netflix must be feeling they’ve got a hit on their hands with Grace & Frankie, as they’ve already ordered a second season, according to Variety.
It’s not too surprising it’s been a success, as it was co-created by Friends’ Marta Kauffman and stars the impressive quartet of Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. Who wouldn’t want to take a look at that, even if you didn’t know what it was about?
Grace & Frankie is about old friends turned enemies, who suddenly find common ground again when their husbands leave them and run off with one another.
Kauffman comments on getting a follow-up season, “Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix. “Because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, ‘We’d like to do a season two.’ So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted [Sarandos] and Miley to thank.”
Season 2 will hit Netflix in 2016.
