Netflix ordered a 16-episode seventh and final season of Grace and Frankie, which will make it the streamer’s longest-running series. “It’s thrilling and somehow fitting that our show about the challenges, as well as the beauty and dignity of aging, will be the oldest show on Netflix,” said co-creators and showrunners Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris. Added series stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, “We’ll miss these two old gals, Grace and Frankie, as much as many of their fans will, but we’ll still be around. We’ve outlasted so many things – just hope we don’t outlast the planet.” Season six premieres in January.

Google will pay a record $170 million fine to settle claims that YouTube illegally collected tracking information from viewers of its channels directed at children without obtaining parental consent. A 1998 law restricts the online collection of data from kids. In a blog post, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said the company will “limit data collection and use on videos made for kids only to what is needed to support the operation of the service. We will also stop serving personalized ads on this content entirely.”

Acknowledging the impact YouTube’s changes will have on creators of child-directed content, creators will have four months to adjust before the changes are put into effect. “We recognize this won’t be easy for some creators and are committed to working with them through this transition and providing resources to help them better understand these changes,” said Wojcicki in her blog post. YouTube also announced a $100 million fund to invest in children’s content.
