Good news for fans of Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda’s on-screen friendship: Grace and Frankie has been picked up for a second season. Variety first reported the news.

The Netflix original, created by Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris (Home Improvement), stars Tomlin and Fonda as women who reluctantly lean on each other when their husbands come out as gay and run away together. Season 2 will be released in 2016.

“Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix,” Kauffman said. “Because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, ‘We’d like to do a season two.’ So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted [Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer] and Miley to thank.”

But Miley’s not the only one who saw it coming. Earlier this month, Fonda told EW, “I want the show to be really successful and go on for so many years that we’ll be in adult diapers for real.”
