Created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, ‘Grace and Frankie’ is a Netflix original comedy series that stars Jane Fonda and Mary Jean “Lily” Tomlin in the title roles of Grace Hanson (née Purcell) and Frankie Bergstein (née Mengela). It premiered in 2015 with the long-term rivals’ lives being turned upside down as their spouses reveal their true sexuality and leave them for each other, making them establish an unlikely bond to face the future. And recently, the show surprised us by dropping the first four chapters of season 7. So, let’s find out what could follow next, shall we?
Grace and Frankie Season 7 Episode 5 Release Date
After over 19 months of no new content, ‘Grace and Frankie’ returned with a bang by premiering its seventh and final season through a surprise launch of its initial four episodes on August 13, 2021. This 16-part installment will take the total number of episodes in the show to an impressive 94, making it create history as the longest-running Netflix original to date, out of both drama and comedy. However, it seems like we’ll have to wait a while before Episode 5 makes its way to our screens – until, quite possibly, Q1 2022. That is if this pandemic doesn’t affect production again.
After all, the four chapters that we now get to see were filmed before the entertainment industry came to a brief standstill in March 2020 when the still ongoing covid-19 pandemic struck the world. ‘Grace and Frankie’ has now resumed active production, but things are certainly a little slow. The reason we received this first quarter of episodes, as revealed by the leads in the announcement video on Twitter, is that they wished to give the fans “something special until we finish the rest of the season.” And we’ll be honest; after a year and a half, it definitely is a treat for us.
Where to Watch Grace and Frankie Season 7 Episode 5 Online?
As we mentioned above, ‘Grace and Frankie’ is a Netflix original series. So, the easiest way to watch it is on the online service through a subscription. Unfortunately, as the platform no longer offers a free trial in the US, you’ll have to pay for the monthly use if you wish to catch up on this production, along with numerous others, as and when they air. You can access Netflix via your smartphone, tablet, laptop, and desktop, or any other compatible streaming device like AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AirTV, Chromecast.
Grace and Frankie Season 7 Episode 5 Spoilers
‘Grace and Frankie’ Season 7 Episode 5 is expected to pick up right from where Episode 4 left off. Now that Grace is a remarried woman, the dynamic has shifted a little between the two friends, and that’s precisely what this installment is bound to cover. Moreover, the living arrangement between them and their former husbands (since they’re homeless due to a toilet explosion) and their separate relationships with their children and Grace’s partner, Nick Skolka (Peter Gallagher), will also be explored.
