A very promising thing just got even more promising: Martin Sheen has signed on to play Jane Fonda’s husband in the upcoming Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie, EW has confirmed.

The half-hour comedy centers on two rivals—Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin)—who find common ground after they discover that their respective husbands have fallen in love with each other and plan to marry. The single-camera series, the brainchild of Friends creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris (Sullivan & Son), is expected to premiere in 2015.

No word yet on who will play Tomlin’s beau, but here’s hoping more West Wing alums join Tomlin and Sheen’s mini-reunion.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported this news.
