The fifth season of Grace & Frankie will premiere on Netflix UK on Friday January 18th, it has been announced.
Grace & Frankie follows the eponymous characters whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, they form an unlikely bond to face an uncertain future together and discover a new definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.

RuPaul joins the cast as a guest star in season five as Benjamin Le Day, a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace and Frankie. Series creators Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris executive produce alongside Paula Weinstein, John Hoffman, Billy Finnegan, Robbie Tollin, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross.
