Netflix has saved the best for last.
Dolly Parton is joining Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for the seventh and final season of “Grace and Frankie.”
This will be a 40th year reunion of the gals from “9 to 5,” who made that comedy such a smash hit when it was released in 1980.
Since then, Jane, Lily, and Dolly have remained close friends. There was a TV spin off on ABC of “9 to 5” that ran for one season, and on which Fonda made a special appearance. There was always talk of a sequel to the famed film, but nothing ever developed.
The news that the ladies will reunite on the final 12 episodes of “Grace and Frankie” should make the show’s drop day — that’s when Netflix reveals an entire series at once — a big one.
PS What about Dabney Coleman? He was the co-star in “9 to 5,” who played the boss, Franklin Hart. Coleman — with a long celebrated career — will turn 90 on January 2, 2022. His last listed credit was playing Kevin Costner’s dad in “Yellowstone” in 2019.
