'Grace and Frankie' Canceled: Why Season 8 Isn't Happening

In late April, Netflix released the final season of Grace and Frankie. Upon its release, some may have questioned whether the series would continue beyond Season 7. 

Season 8 of Grace and Frankie will not happen, as Season 7 was announced to be the last season for the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin show.  

Netflix announced in September 2019 that Season 7 would be Grace and Frankie's final season before Season 6 even aired.  

Netflix's former VP of Original Series, Cindy Holland, made a statement at the time praising Grace and Frankie, as well as the entire team behind the show. 

As Holland continued to praise the show's stars, including Tomlin, Fonda, Martin Sheen, and Sam Waterson 

she said, "Grace and Frankie has brilliantly and hilariously demystified the experience of growing older and given voice to the fastest growing segment of our population." 

"Jane, Lily, Sam, and Martin have become role models for generations of fans, and we are so proud to have been a part of the show's journey from the beginning," she added. 

The show's main stars, Tomlin and Fonda, also released a statement about the series' ending. A special thanks goes to Marta, Howard, and the team at Skydance for always being there for us.
