Fans recently said goodbye to one of Netflix’s longest-running shows, “Grace and Frankie,” after seven seasons and almost 100 episodes. The series follows Frankie (Lily Tomlin) and Grace (Jane Fonda), who bond over the fact that their husbands were having an affair with each other.

The two women must now try to rebuild their lives and heal their hurt in order to move on.
If you’re already missing the gal pals then you may find comfort in the fact that there are other shows featuring older women as they tackle life, aging, family, friendships, and everything in between. Consider adding one or all of these shows to your watchlist.

The Golden Girls

“The Golden Girls” is an absolute classic. It follows four amazing women — Blanche Devereaux, Rose Nylund, Dorothy Zbornak, and Sophia Petrillo — all living together in Miami. “The Golden Girls” perfectly ties in humor with more somber moments and does an excellent job of tackling meaningful issues of the ’80s.

Schitt’s Creek

One of the best parts of “Grace and Frankie” is the relationship the women share with their adult children. And if you agree, you’ll absolutely love “Schitt’s Creek.” The series focuses on the Rose family, who end up losing their riches and are forced to move to a small town they actually own. Needless to say, being poor is a huge adjustment for the Rose family, and it’s hilarious to watch them try. “Schitt’s Creek” also brings countless heartfelt moments as the family strengthens the bonds between each other.

Younger

While Liza Miller is a lot younger than Frankie and Grace, she still finds herself feeling too old to fit in. “Younger” follows Sutton Foster as Liza Miller, a 40-year-old who ends up pretending she’s 26 to land a job in the publishing world. “Younger” tackles ageism in a really great way, and also highlights the importance of having strong female friendships. There’s also no shortage of romance, lies, sex, and drama.
