Frankie and Grace Season 7 Part 2 premiere – For all of you long-waiting lovers of the ingenious Frankie and Grace from Netflix, the payoff comes with the premiere this Friday of the finale of season 7. Following the story of the eponymous once-rivaling, now husbandless wives of two businessmen (portrayed by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson) who left them in the dust for each other (and boy, has their romance been just as satisfying onscreen as Grace and Frankie’s friendship), fans will be able to enjoy the last hilarious encore of these two women played by Hollywood favorites Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. So buckle in as these two ride out the second part of their last chapter on screen, because these two have certainly been through a lot, be it laughing, crying, trying shrooms, or entrepreneuring products.

Williams (playing his eponymous character) and Joshua Leonard (also playing his own character of the same name) go missing in documentary-style storytelling.
