"Grace and Frankie" certainly has an odd plot, but it is the kind of romantic comedy America can identify with in this day and age. This is why soon after fans finished binge-watching the 13 episodes of Season 1, they started demanding new episodes.
The first season took fans through the journey of Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie's (Lily Tomlin) life after their respective husbands said they were leaving the women to be with each other. While navigating through their newly-single life after learning that their husbands have been cheating on them with each other for over 20 years, they realised they needed each other despite their differences.
The events that followed were touching and hilarious in equal parts, and thankfully Netflix has confirmed fans will get more of this lovely duo, come May 6, 2016. In the coming seasons fans will get to see the aftermath of the events from Season 1 finale, "The Vows".
As viewers will remember, Sol (Sam Waterston) had gone over to Frankie's house to take his things out, and the nostalgia of their shared memories led to the couple having sex. Although it proved to be the closure Lily needed, Sol will have a tough time convincing Robert (Martin Sheen) that he sleeping with his ex-wife a day prior to their wedding is not a bad thing.
It was not revealed if Sol confessed to his fiancÃ©, but if he did, maybe the fans did not miss their wedding after all; considering it would have been called off. The one great thing to come out of the whole ordeal is the beautiful friendship between Grace and Frankie.
A lot of fans were touched when they saw Grace tell Sol: "Go home, Sol. I'll take care of Frankie". It is moments like these that make "Grace and Frankie" so loveable.
Meanwhile, we may get another strong, endearing woman in the mix come Season 2. There are rumours about Fonda and Tomlin's co-star Dolly Parton from the 1980 film "9 to 5". The Hollywood Reporter has quoted the country singer as saying she would be happy to join her old pals.
"I told them whenever I get a little block of time, I'd love to come be on the show," Parton had said during the Television Critics Association summer press tour of 2015, adding that she had always wanted a "9 to 5" reunion.
Hopefully, that "9 to 5" reunion will happen on Netflix's "Grace and Frankie".
