'Grace and Frankie' Cast Ages: How Old Are the Stars of the Netflix Comedy?

Grace and Frankie Season 7 is sadly the comedy-drama's final outing. Fans were treated to the first four episodes of the final season on Friday, August 14, with the remaining 12 are expected in 2022. The comedy has been running since 2015 and has starred award-winning actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin from the very beginning.

It may be unsurprising that the cast and characters of Grace and Frankie are very similar in age. In a statement announcing the show's seventh and final season, series co-creators and showrunners Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris said: "It's thrilling and somehow fitting, that our show about the challenges, as well as the beauty and dignity of aging, will be the oldest show on Netflix." So, how old are the stars of Grace and Frankie? Newsweek has everything you need to know.
