Yes, you read that right!
In a piece of almost believe-it-or-not news, the Golden Girls are back, they’ve embraced Zoom, and they’re getting an update with an all-Black cast. I get it, this might be too much news for one reading, and we really hope the series will be as good as the original one.
The sweet and naive Rose Nylund will be played by Tracee Ellis Ross, the smart and sarcastic Dorothy Zbornak will be played by Regina King, Sanaa Lathan will play fan-favorite Blanche Devereaux, and the ever-so-popular Sophia Petrillo will be played by Alfie Woodard.
The news of the revival of one of the most popular TV shows to date was announced by Ross in an Instagram post. The actress revealed that she will play non-other than Betty White’s character, Rose Nylund.
Unfortunately, it will only be a special, and it will be streamed live on Zoom, in a partnership with Color of Change.
Expectedly, thousands of fans were excited about the event, and they appear unable to wait for it to happen.
