No, Miley Cyrus does not make programming decisions for Netflix, but her influence should never be underestimated. Variety confirmed Wednesday that Grace and Frankie, the Netflix series starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as enemies who find solidarity when their husbands leave them for each other, will live to see a second season. And the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman is thanking Cyrus for doing her part.

“Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix,” Kauffman said in a statement. “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.’”

The show has been praised for creating leading roles for women over 70 in an industry that’s frequently wont to do so, as well as for its normalization of same-sex marriage. Miley Cyrus would likely agree on all counts.
