Grace and Frankie is a feel-good comedy show that can lift anyone up on a bad day. The show is witty, humorous, and full of heartwarming situations. It currently has six seasons and the producers surprised fans with a few new episodes on August 13, 2021. The release of these episodes was completely out of the blue and fans were extremely shocked as no show has ever done this before. Why did Netflix release only four episodes of the seventh season? What is the release date of the remaining episodes? Keep on reading to find out the latest information about Grace and Frankie Season 7.
Grace and Frankie Season 7 Release Date
Netflix renewed Grace and Frankie for a seventh season even before the release of the sixth one. Production for season 7 began in 2020 but had to be stopped due to the pandemic. Then, filming started again in June 2021 and Netflix released 4 episodes of the seventh season in August 2021. This was quite surprising because the previous six seasons had been released in a single go. However, the producers didn’t want to make fans wait for a long time as filming the remaining episodes will take almost a year. Thus, they surprised their loyal fans with four episodes to keep the hype of the seventh season alive! Several of the stars commented on this surprise release including Jane Fonda who said, “As you know, we’ve been filming the seventh and final season of Grace & Frankie…we just wanted to give you something special until we finish.”
Unlike the previous six seasons which had 13 episodes each, season 7 will have 16 episodes. This is because it is going to be the final season in the series! The release date for the remaining 12 episodes has not been announced by Netflix as of yet. But based on statistics and our predictions, it will probably be somewhere in mid-2022.
In the finale of Season 6, we saw Robert and Sol stranded after their house flooded. Season 7 picks up the story from here. Both of them move into the houses of their ex-wives until they can find a solution to their housing problems. As for Grace and Frankie, they’re busy trying to deal with the 50,000 dollars they found on Nick’s sofa after his arrest. So far, Season 7 has been nothing less than chaotic and exciting. It is full of Gracie’s humor, Frankie’s charms, and Nick’s anger.
Details about the plot of the remaining 12 episodes are still not known. However, we do know they’ll be quite unique and will reveal different sides of each character. The co-creator of the series, Marta Kauffman, gave fans a little insight into season 7’s plot. She said, “I can’t say too much, but we’re going to be dealing with Robert, Sol, Grace, and Frankie in a way that we haven’t seen before.”
