During a special virtual press event to promote the launch of “Star” in the UK and Ireland, Disney executives were asked about the addition to one of the most popular series from the 1980s, “The Golden Girls”.
The Golden Girls is the story of four older women who share a house in Miami Beach, Florida. Bea Arthur plays Dorothy, a divorced school teacher, with a sardonic wit. Rue McClanahan plays Blanche, a man-hunting Southern Belle. Betty White plays Rose, a very sweet woman who is somewhat spacey. Rounding out the trio is Estelle Getty, playing Dorothy’s outspoken mother, Sophia.
The popular series ran for 180 episodes across seven seasons from 1985 to 1992. The show won 11 Emmys, four Golden Globes, and was Emmy-nominated 68 times.
No Disney+ release date was announced, but it was confirmed that the show would be added to Disney+ via the new “Star” brand during the summer. In the United States, all seven seasons are available on Hulu.
