Netflix announced today that Grace and Frankie has been picked up for a sixth season. The good news comes just days ahead of the comedy's fifth season release, with word that pre-production on the next season has already begun.

The critically-acclaimed series is one of the streaming service's longest-running original comedies, with a line-up leading 52 episodes to-date. Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda star as divorcees brought together after their husbands fall in love with each other. The roles are the pair's first together since 1980's comedy 9 to 5.

There is no word on the number of episodes on-order for Season 6, though 13 has been the status quo thus far and there is no reason to expect a change at this point.

Look for Season 6 of Grace and Frankie to hit sometime in 2020. In the meantime, Season 5 is set to premiere this Friday, January 18.
