Grace and Frankie follows Grace, a retired cosmetics mogul, and Frankie, a hippie art teacher, whose husbands, Robert and Sol, are successful divorce lawyers in San Diego. 

Grace and Frankie’s lives are turned upside down when Robert and Sol announce that they are in love with each other and are leaving their wives.

The women move into a beach house together, and though they could not be any different – Grace is uptight but clever and Frankie is relaxed but ditsy – they end up becoming best friends who balance each other out. 

And 12 more to come: And it has been promised that 12 more episodes of the hit drama from Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris will be released sometime in 2022

Last fall Fonda said she intends to lose 10 pounds before she returns to filming on her TV show.

The 83-year-old actress and her castmates Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Brooklyn Decker all had to stop work on the seventh and final season of the Netflix series in March when the COVID-19 pandemic began to sweep across the globe in March.

Fonda has gained some weight since whilst isolating at home but she will make sure that she is back to her best shape when the cameras start rolling again.

In an interview with The New York Times, she said: ‘There was a time when I was anorexic, but I never got below 112 (pounds). I don’t let it get too far out of hand.

‘I’m not at my fighting weight right now. I’m 127. My fighting weight is about 119. So, you know, when we get three weeks out from shooting Grace and Frankie, I’ll lose 10 pounds.’

The Coming Home star was one of the pioneers of home workouts in the 1980s and her keep-fit videos and books sold by their millions across the world and she stays in great shape now with a personal trainer and following a healthy diet.

At the start of this year, Fonda decided to go grey and stop dying her hair blonde, and she admits the producers on Grace and Frankie supported her decision.

She said: ‘I went grey at just the right moment. I didn’t know COVID was coming along. I got tired of the chemicals and the time and the money to keep myself this particular colour of blonde, you know – enough already! And so I talked to the producers of ‘Grace and Frankie’ and I said, ‘I want to go grey, but that would mean that Grace is going to have to go grey,’ and they were all for it.’

And in May Fonda said she ‘doesn’t know’ if she’ll return to movies.

The actress enjoyed years of success on the big screen but in recent years has left behind her ‘snobbish’ attitude to TV and understood her ‘future’ lies in television because it is a better medium for older women.

She told Harper’s Bazaar magazine: ‘I was one of those movie people who, for a long time, was snobbish about TV. Aaron Sorkin offered me this ongoing role in The Newsroom and I realized, “This is my future.” I’m old. Television is more forgiving for older women, and so I said, “OK, I’m going to start paying attention.”

‘So I started watching TV and now I don’t know if I’m going to go back into movie theatres. I just love television.’
