The Golden Girls was, and is, a hugely popular show that debuted on NBC in the ’80s. The series followed a group of four women that shared a retirement home in Florida. These snarky yet adorable senior ladies shared much more than just a home, they had a bond that was truly unique. Sometimes they found themselves in some pretty questionable situations, but ultimately they always had each other’s backs. No matter what they were facing, they could overcome any obstacle – usually over cheesecake.
The show starred four amazing actresses, among them, was the beloved Betty White. The first four seasons of The Golden Girls were written by Christopher Lloyd, the producer of today’s hit show Modern Family. The series ran for a total of seven seasons and had a fanbase that totaled up into the multi-millions. It was as endearing as it was hilarious, and it is still shown today via reruns on television and social media all over the world.
