Dolly Parton will reunite with 9 to 5 costars, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda on an upcoming episode of Grace and Frankie. Dolly, Lily and Jane starred together in the iconic workplace comedy over 40 years ago.

Almost since the inception of the hit Netflix series starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, fans petitioned for a cameo appearance from Dolly Parton.

Dolly said earlier this year that she wanted to appear on the show with her former costars.

“I’ve been trying to do Grace and Frankie for years.

“We worked so well together on 9 to 5. It’s a crazy wonderful show. We’ve been trying to write me in somehow. So when it’s safe for us to actually do a production when they’re back, I’ll probably get around to doing that.”

Lily Tomlin said she and Jane Fonda hoped for the same thing.

“We’re always hoping that will happen. We have a great role for her this time. I think she will do it. I’m just hoping she will.”

Jane Fonda, 83, stars as Grace and Lily Tomlin, 82, as Frankie in the Netflix series. They play a pair of women whose husbands leave them and marry each other.

Netflix did not release any other details of 75-year-old Dolly’s appearance with former co-stars. However, the current seventh season of the Netflix hit show is also the final. With filming on the series recently wrapping, Dolly has obviously already filmed her cameo.

9 to 5

The classic 1980 film 9 to 5 starred Dolly, Lilly and Jane as three working women getting even with their sexist boss.

The film grossed over $100 million and launched Dolly’s acting career. The country music star also wrote the theme song, achieving a number one hit on the country, pop and adult-contemporary charts.

The movie later inspired a television series of the same name and a musical play.

    I can’t wait for this reunion. It should be hilarious. They are all such friends of the LGBTQI+ community.
