Netflix is more than winning with its trend of rebooting series near and dear to our hearts! Fuller House lead the way, but now an older and even more beloved show is coming back to television–Golden Girls! Yes our favorite, but mostly dearly departed, girls are getting the reboot treatment!

You might, and rightfully so, ask how? Especially since all of the original cast, save Betty White have passed. Well where there’s a will, there’s a way. Read below:

The original series starred – all of whom have passed on, save for White. The rebooted series will star White, but so far no other cast members have been announced.

“The original series ended, and then we went on to film The Golden Palace for awhile, but then that one ended, too,” said White. “I have only seen the pilot script for the reboot, but it’s very funny. It takes place in the same house. A woman outbids Rose for Blanche’s house at an auction, but the two become friends and end up moving into the place together. Then, Rose’s daughter, who is now in her 60s, moves in as well, along with her 30-something daughter. The house is full once more, and the story really is a laugh riot.”

White says that she signed on for the initial 6 episodes, but doesn’t know much more about the story or the characters.

“It didn’t take much coaxing to get me to play Rose one more time,” said White. “I truly cannot wait.”

We cannot wait either! More laughs, cheese cakes, St. Olaf stories,  and we are going gaga over here! No one can take the places of Dorothy, Blanche, or Sophia, but this new generation needs to see that older ladies still got it. After all if 40 is the new 20, then 60+ still has all the energy it needs to bring the story back to life! We will keep you posted as more details become available!
