The first thing worth noting here should be pretty obvious: At this point, technically Netflix can do whatever they want. Nobody really anticipated the first batch of season 7 episodes launching today but here we are. They could easily try to do another surprise launch down the road.
Yet, and as Deadline noted, there is a method to the streaming service’s madness here. These first four episodes were filmed prior to the onset of the global health crisis and at this point, Netflix probably felt like there was no reason to keep people waiting for more. The show is back in production now, but it could be a while before the remaining twelve are going to be ready to stream on the aforementioned service.
Netflix has not announced a return date for Grace and Frankie yet, but our feeling is that you’ll either see them near the end of this year or at some point in the first half of 2022. If nothing else, it’s possible that we’ll get at least another batch of the final season. This is one of the longest-lasting comedies in the history of the streaming service; in between that and the star power at the center of it all here, we’re sure that there is a plan to end things in the finest fashion possible.
