Netflix has quite the Golden Globe reward for nominee Lily Tomlin.

The streaming service has renewed the comedy for a third season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The comedy, produced by Skydance Productions and Okay Goodnight and starring Tomlin and Jane Fonda, will return for an additional 13 episodes in 2017.

The news comes ahead of season two's debut — and as the series awaits a formal premiere date for its 2016 return.

Tomlin on Thursday picked up a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a comedy or musical TV series for her role. She'll compete come January with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom, Scream Queens' Jamie Lee Curtis, Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, with the latter taking home the prize last year.

For Netflix, Grace and Frankie is part of a roster of original scripted comedies including BoJack Horseman, Fuller House, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Master of None and more.

Grace and Frankie stars Fonda and Tomlin in their first project together since 1980's Nine to Five. They play two frenemies who are thrust into each other's lives when their husbands leave them for one another. Friends creator Marta Kauffman co-created the series with Howard J. Morris, both of whom executive produce with Fonda, Tomlin, Paula Weinstein, Dana Goldberg, David Ellison and Marcy Ross.
