The Golden Girls just landed on Hulu this month, but is a reboot of the popular sitcom possible?
After Hulu, why not right? Not so fast though. Susan Harris revealed why fans of the popular comedy series will never see a reboot. She said the following, per an Entertainment Weekly report:
“They’ve wanted to do Golden Girls the Musical and re-do Golden Girls, and we’ve always said no because Golden Girls would not be Golden Girls without that cast.”
After the series ended in 1992, a spin-off was made, and it did not lost – Bea Arthur only appeared randomly on The Golden Palace.
Would you have watched a reboot of Golden Girls? Tell us what you think.
Yes but maybe not enjoy it as much as originally actresses aren’t available. It’s just not the same second time around.
You just cant recapture the essence of the original GG! Never! 28 years later and i still say they cant make em like they used to!
No, I don’t think I’d watch a reboot. And to Diane…. how about asking all the VietNam Vets about Hanoi Jane & watching her in anything!
You cannot improve or immitate perfection like we saw with original cast of Golden Girls. I cannot imagine anything as well done and wouldn’t watch it. Let’s see the reruns.
That is too bad, that was a good show…but why not remake Golden Girls with new people with people like Shirley Maclaine, Jane Fonda, Melissa McCarthy…..have remakes of past famous shows?
Because nobody wants that. Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty are THE Golden Girls. We want to see those actresses, not other actresses trying to be them. Trying to redo their comedy and chemistry would feel like cheap knockoff. That’s why most remakes/reboots are awful, they can never recapture the magic of the original.
Just show more episodes, I love to watch the show
Broadcast network executives should be so wise and realize this.
