En conversación con Variety, Fonda y Tomlin dijeron: “Estamos agradecidas de que nuestra serie lidió con problemas que conectan con nuestra gran generación. ¡Y también con sus hijos y, sorprendentemente, también con los suyos! Echaremos de menos estas dos mujeres, Grace y Frankie, como lo harán los fans, pero todavía estaremos cerca. Hemos sobrevivido tantas cosas, solo espero que no sobrevivamos al planeta”.

“Desde su estreno en 2015, ‘Grace and Frankie’ ha desmitificado experta e hilarantemente la experiencia de envejecer y ha dado voz al segmento de más rápido crecimiento de nuestra población”, dijo Cindy Holland, vicepresidenta de series originales de Netflix. “Jane, Lily, Sam y Martin se han convertido en modelos a seguir para los fanáticos que abarcan generaciones en todo el mundo, y estamos muy orgullosos de haber sido parte del viaje del programa desde el primer día. Un agradecimiento especial a Marta, Howard y al equipo de Skydance, que han sido excelentes socios en cada paso del camino”.
