Feb. 14 (UPI) — Netflix said Wednesday it has renewed its comedy Grace and Frankie for a fifth season.
Starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, the show is expected to return with fresh episodes in 2019. It is about two women whose lives are upended when their husbands reveal they are gay and want to be together.
Entertainer RuPaul has signed on to play the recurring role of Benjamin Le Day, “a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace and Frankie” for Season 5, a news release said.
The first four seasons are now streaming globally.
