Jane Fonda’s “Grace” and Lily Tomlin’s “Frankie” will have a familiar TV face on board as their new “friend” in the fourth season of the Netflix comedy “Grace and Frankie.” The show is bringing aboard “Friends” alumna Lisa Kudrow to be what Netflix describes as the “third wheel” on the show.
The streaming service didn’t provide any additional details about Kudrow’s role, instead accompanying the casting announcement with the following generic blurb about the show:
“In ‘Grace and Frankie,’ Jane Fonda (‘Grace’) and Lily Tomlin (‘Frankie’) star as two women whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie form an unlikely and unbreakable bond and face their uncertain futures head-on, hand-in-hand. Together with their ex-husbands and children, they discover the true definition of ‘family,’ with laughter, tears, and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.”
Season four launches globally on Jan. 19, 2018.
