RuPaul is already fierce, and now he’s about to be Vybrant.
It was announced today, February 14, that the Netflix comedy series, Grace and Frankie, was renewed for a fifth season on the streaming platform.
Just as the news broke, Supermodel of the World, RuPaul, tweeted at series star Jane Fonda asking her if there was going to be another season of the show.
Yup, 2019. You want in?? https://t.co/ukUA37c6RT

Fonda responded yes and asked him he wanted to join. Well, it turns out that the casting of the Drag Race host was already underway because TV Line is reporting that Ru will join Fonda and Lily Tomlin for the new season of Grace and Frankie, which will debut in 2019.
Ru is set to guest-star as Benjamin Le Day, a “formidable and quick-witted adversary” to the series’ leading duo.
So not only will the queen of all queens be on the Netflix series, but he will be pitted against Tomlin and Fonda?
We thought we couldn’t be more excited after Grace and Frankie added Lisa Kudrow for the fourth season, but now we are absolutely gagging at the thought of Mama Ru sharing scenes with the two legendary actresses.
This isn’t the first time Ru has appeared in a Netflix series, last year he played the sassy neighbor on Girlboss—which was canceled after one season.
Is it 2019 yet?
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.
