Kudrow will star alongside leads Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) as Grace’s longtime manicurist, Sheree, according to Variety. Sheree and Grace will develop a close friendship, which irritates Frankie and threatens to cause a division between the titular characters. Season 4 is scheduled to debut in 2018.

The announcement of the renewal comes less than three weeks after the season 3 premiere of the Netflix comedy-drama. The series follows Grace and Frankie’s blossoming — and sometimes hostile — friendship after their husbands, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston), announce that they are leaving them to marry each other.
