After seven seasons, Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie is coming to an end this April. But as you prepare to say goodbye, the streamer encourages you to look back on their unexpected partnership.

"It was a crazy ride, but I'd rather take a crazy ride with you than a normal ride with anybody else," Jane Fonda's Grace says in a trailer for the final episodes, which you can watch below.

Grace and Frankie began when the eponymous characters' husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) left them for each other, which forced the women, who were friendly through the years as their husbands worked together and their kids grew up together, to really bond. Over the course of the seasons (94 episodes), they started businesses together, supported each other through new relationships and health ailments, and yes, often butted heads because of some personality differences.

Before the series signs off, Frankie (Lily Tomlin), convinced she is "going to be murdered," is on a mission to cement her own legacy, while Coyote (Ethan Embry) prepares to tie the knot with his girlfriend Jessica (Christine Woods), Brianna (June Diane Raphael) experiences a crisis at work and in her relationship, and Nwabudike (Baron Vaughn) takes up a new hobby.

"As you approach the end, you start to wonder who you really are," Frankie says in the trailer.

The duo at the center of the show also has to face down their own mortality, with them discussing what it might mean to lose each other. Frankie mentions she is "open" to doing a "Thelma & Louise thing" to avoid that, but naturally Grace just says, "Pass."

The first four episodes of Grace and Frankie's final season were released as a surprise in August 2021, but the remaining 12 episodes will launch April 29.

The show also stars Brooklyn Decker, Peter Cambor, Lindsey Kraft, Marsha Mason, Tim Bagley, Peter Gallagher, and Millicent Martin. It comes from creators and showrunners Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, who executive produce alongside Robbie Tollin, Hannah KS Canter, Fonda, Tomlin, Marcy Ross, Paula Weinstein, and Skydance's David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost. The show is produced by Skydance Television.

Over the years, Grace and Frankie has averaged a 58 Metascore from critics.
