Grace and Frankie will air its seventh and final season in 2022, concluding the hilarious and heartwarming friendship between the characters of Tomlin and Fonda.
Tomlin and Fonda have been great real-life friends, ever since they met on the set of 9 to 5 in 1980 with Dolly Parton, in which they appear together.
Grace and Frankie started in 2014, and sees Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) forced to move in together after their husbands turned out to be gay and fell in love with each other. Although the two are totally opposites, they do make good (and sometimes wacky) friends.
McDowell meanwhile had a long career, appearing in Stanley Kubrick. A clockwork orange, Star Trek Generations, Entourage, Mozart in the jungle and Halloween.

Go forward will be led by Paul Weitz, who recently led Paternity for Netflix, which is adapted from the 2011 memoir Two kisses for Maddy. It will be produced by Limelight, who recently produced the Andy Samberg-led Palm springs and Starling with Melissa McCarthy.
The film has yet to start filming, and it is not yet known what roles Tomlin, Fonda, McDowell and Roundtree will play in the comedy, and whether Tomlin and Fonda will be the “two old friends” in question.
