“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,” said Netflix.
