RuPaul is a famous host and also the executive producer of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” He is an Emmy Award-winning host and also was named as one of the Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People last year.
Grace and Frankie: Will Lisa Kudrow be back?
Season 4 had high viewership rating and was ranked as the highest of all the seasons. Credit for the success can be given to the improved writing. However, the viewership saw the spike when the show cast Lisa Kudrow.
The character played by Lisa Kudrow(Friends fame) gained immense popularity and fans thoroughly loved her presence in the show. It is not clear whether Lisa will be back or not. But fans are eager to see her in Grace and Frankie Season 5. Most of the casting is not confirmed yet, and there are chances that she might be back too.
What can fans Expect from Season 5?
Similar to the other seasons, fans can expect to see a new and fierce rivalry between RuPaul’s character and Grace and Frankie. Last time we saw Grace and Frankie, there were not many indications about the possible future of the show. They both find that their beach house was being sold and had to stop that from happening. Also, Robert and Sol had put their efforts to make their relationship stable. So Season 5 will be all about Grace and Frankie back to work and fighting against a new and tougher competition.
Will season 5 be the finale of Grace and Frankie?
Jane Fonda (80 years) and Lily Tomlin (78) are getting old. And this is a major concern for the fans. When asked about the ending of Grace and Frankie, the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman said to Indiewire, she doesn’t have any game plan to end the show. If Netflix allows then Marta is ready to run the show as long as Jane and Lilly are comfortable.
So fans will be seeing Grace and Frankie for the next few years more.
