Can you believe it's been 29 years since the Golden Girls first aired?! (29 years, 18 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Golden Girls end?
When the Golden Girls came to an end after 7 years in May 1992, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Rose Nylund (Betty White). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Golden Girls reunion disappoint people?
The Golden Girls aired from 1985-1992 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But White said she's not sure if the Golden Girls would work today. “I don't want to see old Rose Nylund,” she told a journalist (White turned 92 in January). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Golden Girls movie?
In a recent interview, Betty White said she can't imagine a Golden Girls reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
What about a Golden Girls reboot?
Recasting the Golden Girls for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Golden Girls reunion, a Golden Girls movie, or a Golden Girls reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
