“Grace and Frankie” has been renewed for a fifth season with RuPaul on board for a guest starring role.

Deadline reports that RuPaul will play Benjamin Le Day,” a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin).”

Fonda, RuPaul and Tomlin confirmed the collaboration in a Twitter exchange on Wednesday.

“Hey @LilyTomlin @JaneFonda will there be a Season 5 of @GraceAndFrankie?,” RuPaul tweeted.

Fonda responded, “Yup, 2019. You want in??” to which RuPaul tweeted,  “Does @DollyParton sleep on her back? YES!”

Tomlin also confirmed the news tweeting, “Let’s do this.”

“Grace and Frankie” season five is expected to stream on Netflix in 2019.
