Netflix has greenlit a second series of ‘Grace and Frankie’, series co-creator Marta Kaufman, of Friends-fame, has revealed.
Kauffman spilled the beans on a FYC Panel at the Pacific Design Centre in Hollywood. And it seems the recommission was down to a certain celebrity fan.
She said: “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 … Miley to thank.”
The show centres on the titular characters who have to rebuild their lives after their husbands come out as gay. The hubbies leave them to start a relationship with each other, leaving Grace and Frankie to fend for themselves.
Starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in the title roles, and Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson as their eloping ex-lovers, the second series should start next year.
Netflix is rumoured to be the new home of Channel 4’s dystopian series ‘Black Mirror’.
It has also commissioned Ellen DeGeneres to produce a series of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ based on the Dr Seuss book of the same name.
