Grace and Frankie just got a little more fabulous. Not only is the comedy returning for a fifth season but it’s also adding a fabulous new addition. RuPaul is sashaying over to guest star.
The 57-year-old drag icon will play Benjamin Le Day, a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace and Frankie. Can’t wait to see these formidable forces go up against each other. Talk about a battle royal.
The third season of Grace and Frankie earned nine major television nominations, the most of any prior season, including Primetime Emmy Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for both Fonda and Tomlin. No doubt, Season 4, which just premiered last month will do the same.
Fingers crossed Lisa Kudrow, who popped up on Season 4, returns as Grace’s longtime manicurist Sheree. Loved her. Speaking of guest stars, isn’t it time that Dolly Parton finally drops by for a long-awaited 9 to 5 reunion? I’ve been waiting patiently.
Season 5 is set to drop in 2019. Excited that Ru is joining the show? Weigh in below.
