Netflix announced today that Grace and Frankie has been picked up for a seventh and final season. The news comes four months ahead of the veteran comedy's Season 6 release, which is slated for sometime in January.

The streaming service has ordered an expanded 16 episodes for the critically-acclaimed series' final run - up from its typical 13. All told, its 94 total episodes will see the show go out as the longest-running Netflix original series.

"It's thrilling and somehow fitting, that our show about the challenges, as well as the beauty and dignity of aging, will be the oldest show on Netflix," said co-creators Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris.

Grace and Frankie stars 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.
