Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are starring alongside Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson in a new Netflix comedy premiering next month. Grace and Frankie comes from Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris (Home Improvement), Deadline reports. The show follows the aftermath of Grace (Fonda) and Frankie's (Tomlin) husbands (Sheen, Waterson) revealing that they've fallen in love with each other and intend to get married. Fonda and Tomlin previously starred together in the 1980 comedy 9 to 5, and the trailer reveals lots of feisty barbs and hints at some trope-y self discovery.

The 13-episode season will be available on Netflix on May 8.

Meanwhile, Netflix's other comedy, Arrested Development, is getting another 17-episode season. However, it's still unclear if this upcoming season will also be on Netflix. We're also not sure if Orange Is The New Black is still considered a comedy, now that there are new categorization rules for the Emmys.
