Who is in the Grace and Frankie season 7 part 2 cast?
The titular Grace and Frankie are played by none other than Hollywood legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, with Fonda as Grace Hanson and Tomlins as Frankie Bergstein.
Fonda broke out in the 1960s with movies like Cat Ballou, Barefoot in the Park, Barbarella and her two Oscar-winning roles in Klute and Coming Home. She took about a 15 year break from acting between the ‘90s and mid ‘00s (she’s always been busy outside of Hollywood as an activist and philanthropist), but in recent years has starred in projects like The Newsroom, This Is Where I Leave You, Youth and others. Grace and Frankie, however, has been her big commitment since the show debuted in 2015.
Tomlin’s career has been best defined by her comedic roles, though she has a varied resume that includes Nashville (for which she received an Oscar nomination), All of Me, Flirting With Disaster, The West Wing and millennials will recognize her as the voice of Ms. Frizzle on The Magic School Bus.
Grace and Frankie served as a reunion for Fonda and Tomlin, who famously starred together (along with Dolly Parton) in the 1980 classic 9 to 5.
Other members of the Grace and Frankie cast include Sam Waterson as Sol Bergstein and Martin Sheen as Robert Hanson, Grace and Frankie’s ex-husbands, whose coming out and revealed relationship was the the inciting incident for the series. Other members of the regular cast include June Diane Raphael as Brianna Hanson, Brooklyn Decker as Mallory Hanson, Ethan Embry as Coyote Bergstein and Baron Vaugh as Nwabudike Bergstein.
Some additional confirmed cast for the final episodes include Peter Gallagher and, excitedly, Dolly Parton, bringing together the full 9 to 5 trio.

What is the Grace and Frankie premise?
Grace and Frankie kicks off with the titular characters learning that their husbands are not just work partners, but that they have been romantically involved for many years and are ready to fully embrace that part of their live. This makes Grace and Frankie, who previously had a strained relationship, cope with it all together.
Here is the official description of the final season from Netflix:
"Seven years ago, Grace and Frankie’s lives turned upside down when their longtime husbands left them for… each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie formed an unlikely and unbreakable bond as they faced uncertain futures head-on and hand-in-hand. They’ve laughed together, cried together, did shrooms together and twice over became successful entrepreneurs together. A history-making 94 episodes later, Grace and Frankie continue to show themselves, their families, and their fans what it means to live life to the fullest, fearlessly and unapologetically. Here’s to seven seasons of laughs, tears, mood-enhancers, and good vibes. And, as Grace and Frankie would say, f**k it. This may be their final chapter, but they’re just getting started."
