“Grace & Frankie” star Jane Fonda on Wednesday praised Dolly Parton’s role-playing game in the series’ upcoming final season and promised fans that it will “knock your socks off.”
“It’s not just Dolly joining us, it’s the way she’s brought into the story that will knock your socks off,” Fonda told “The Late Late Show” host James Corden. “It’s so beautiful and so moving and unique. I’m just excited about it.”
Fonda and “G&F” co-star Lily Tomlin also teased the conclusion of the hit series, which returns to Netflix on Friday.
“And the way it ends,” Fonda said, stopping revealing any actual plot lines.
“Oh God,” Tomlin replied, clapping and hyping the expectation.

Days earlier, Fonda called Parton’s appearance “beyond perfect.”
“We were both just so touched when she turned the chair around and there she was,” Fonda told Entertainment Tonight.
Fonda has not elaborated on Parton’s role in the show. It is unclear whether the country music star will play a version of himself or a new character.
Fonda, Tomlin and Parton appeared together in the 1980s comedy “9 to 5”. Fans have long called for them to reunite on “Grace & Frankie,” but executive producer Marta Kauffman resisted until the time came.
