After his appearance on Broad City, RuPaul is heading towards the world of Netflix’s comedy series, Grace and Frankie, on the recently-announced fifth season of the show, as per a new report from TVLine.
On Wednesday (February 14), Netflix announced that that the show has been renewed for yet another season. Around the time of the announcement, Mama Ru reached out to show stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda to ask the big question. (He must have missed the memo.) “Hey @LilyTomlin @JaneFonda will there be a Season 5 of @GraceAndFrankie?” Ru tweeted, to which Fonda responded: “Yup, 2019. You want in??”
Cue an oh-so-appropriately-timed TVLine story. “Joining the actresses will be the aforementioned Drag Race ringleader, who is set to guest-star as Benjamin Le Day, a ‘formidable and quick-witted adversary’ to the series’ reigning queens,” the outlet reported. RuPaul’s appearance adds even more star power to the show after Season 4 saw Lisa Kudrow nab a recurring role as Grace’s longtime manicurist Sheree. See Ru and Jane’s Twitter exchange below!
