Jane's post comes after her co-star Martin, who plays her ex-husband in the series, confirmed that filming was to resume this month following a more than year-long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Appearing on SiriusXM in March, he explained that the cast and crew managed to film the first handful of episodes of the new season last spring before production had to grind to a halt.

Grace and Frankie is set to end with its upcoming seventh season

"They've got us scheduled to come back in June and finish, and we've picked four, maybe four and a half months," he said. "So by the end of June until maybe the beginning of November, we should finish season seven."

At the time, he also teased the possibility that season seven could be released on the streaming platform in two parts since the first four episodes of the show's seventh and final season are "ready to go", although there has been no word on season seven's release date from Netflix yet.

While we'll have to wait and see whether the streaming giant does decide to release the season in two parts, it wouldn't be unheard of. Popular fantasy series Lucifer had its most recent season split into two parts, and the first series of French crime drama Lupin was likewise released in two instalments six months apart.
