How to Watch The Golden Girls with Tracee Ellis Ross, Regina King and More

The Golden Girls are gracing our screens once again — but with a twist. In an all-new Golden Girls special, the show is being recast for one night only with an all-Black cast and some of our favorite actresses filling in the famous roles.

While we’re not getting a full series, we’re still excited to revisit the hit ’80s comedy, which aired its final episode in 1992 and originally starred Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty.

After more than two decades off the air, The Golden Girls is coming back (briefly) to bring attention to a good cause. The event will highlight Color of Change, America’s largest online racial justice organization. “In an effort to further engage our community and drive change, all you need to do to enjoy this evening is sign up to receive messages about how you can make a change during this election!” reads the event’s official description.
