Is Dolly Parton coming to Grace and Frankie? According to Zap2It, an appearance from the country star on the Netflix series is unlikely.
Grace and Frankie stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as two women whose husbands leave them for each other. Both Tomlin and Fonda starred alongside Parton in the 1980 film 9 to 5.
When asked if Parton would ever guest star on the series, co-creator Marta Kauffman said odds are low:
Here’s the deal. We’re still, I feel, creating a world and the world is ‘Grace and Frankie.’ These are characters you want to know and invest in. And the minute you bring in Dolly Parton — who I love, by the way — it’s ‘9 to 5.’ No matter what you do, the thought is, ‘Oh, look, it’s a ‘9 to 5”’ reunion,’ and you’re taken out of the show. So I will never … well, no, that’s not true. I will say there will never be a ‘Friends’ reunion movie, but I will not say ‘never’ on the Dolly Parton thing.”
Season two of Grace and Frankie was just released on May 6th.
