Golden girls aired from 1985 to 1982. The main characters were Rose Nylund (played by Betty White), Blanche Deveraux (played by Rue McClanahan), Dorothy Zbornak (played by Bea Arthur) and Sophia Petrillo (played by Estelle Getty). The NBC comedy follows the lives of four older women who become roommates after going through divorce or widowhood.

TV show reboots have become the norm lately. One reboot that got a lot of fans excited was the reboot of Highway to paradise, with Michael Landon. However, you will not see a restart of Golden girls soon.

During a 2017 interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator Susan Harris said she doesn’t see a reboot without the original cast. As of this writing, all of the original cast members are deceased except Betty White.

“They wanted to do Daddy’s Girls musical comedy and redo Daddy’s Girls, and we always said no because Daddy’s Girls would not Daddy’s Girls without that cast, ”Harris told the publication. After the series ended, there was a spin-off with three of the four characters titled The Golden Palace. However, the show only lasted one season.

“Without Dorothy, it didn’t work,” says Harris. She went on to say Golden girls was “what it was and this is how it should stay”.

100 by Betty Whitee birthday

We don’t think it’s a coincidence that The Golden Girls event is held the same year as Betty White’s 100e birthday january 17e. Fans are so concerned about White as her big birthday approaches that some have posted on social media asking for national security for the actress. Another fan joked that his birthday should be a national holiday.

Another event that takes place during the White’s 100e anniversary is organized by Choice Mutual Insurance Agency. The agency offered fans a chance to win $ 1,000 if they volunteered to watch 10 Hours of White’s work.

“We are looking for someone who adores Betty White,” Choice Mutual Insurance said in a statement. “This candidate is probably already planning to binge on 10 hours of her classics, but now she is paid to do it!” In addition to $ 1,000, the winner receives a DVD player and a selection of DVDs featuring White’s best work.
