Grace & Frankie are returning to our screens, and they’re bringing a familiar face along for the ride.

Lisa Kudrow, star of hit show Friends and cult comedy Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, will join the cast of the hilarious Netflix original when it returns for its fourth season on 19 January next year.

She’ll play Grace’s long-time manicurist and potential new best friend Sheree, although Frankie is skeptical, deadpanning “It’s a good thing I’m not allergic to rhinestones” when she gets a hug from the blinged-up character.

Elsewhere, the ladies’ ex-husbands (and now-lovers) Sol and Robert seek couple’s counselling, which seems like it could lead to more problems than solutions when an open marriage is suggested.

Creator and showrunner Marta Kauffman previously said season four will “really be about the women coming to terms with age, coming to terms with how old they are, where there bodies are at this point, where their minds are at this point.”
