It's been a few decades since Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin stuck it to the man in 9 to 5, but this trailer for their new Netflix show Grace and Frankie proves they haven't lost their mojo.

The grand dames of entertainment and badass activism star in this situational comedy from Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris (Home Improvement) about two women who find themselves in quite a predicament. Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) aren't particularly chummy, but their husbands are law partners, so they're forced to tolerate each other. As it turns out, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) want to be more than law partners; they both want a divorce so they can get married — to each other.

While Robert and Sol try to figure out how to navigate life as newly out partners (who are, by the way, in their 70s), Grace and Frankie have to find a way to pick up the pieces of their former lives and move forward.

Keep an eye out for funny ladies June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn Decker, along with familiar faces like Michael Gross (Family Ties), Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law), Barry Bostwick (Spin City), Christine Lahti (Chicago Hope), and Joe Morton (Papa Pope on Scandal) when this sitcom premieres on Netflix on May 8.
