Viral Poster Sparks Speculation About ‘The Golden Girls’ Reboot, But It’s Just a Prank –

Iconic Sitcom’s LGBTQ+ Fanbase Left Disappointed

A viral poster doing the rounds on social media recently sparked excitement among fans of the iconic sitcom ‘The Golden Girls,’ as it appeared to tease a star-studded reboot with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Lisa Kudrow, and Maya Rudolph stepping into the shoes of the beloved characters.

The photoshopped image depicted Tina Fey as Dorothy, Amy Poehler as Sophia, Lisa Kudrow as Rose, and Maya Rudolph as Blanche, mimicking the original cast’s style and poses. However, the excitement was short-lived as the poster turned out to be a clever prank created by a TV and movie parody Facebook page.

Disappointed Fans, Especially LGBTQ+ Community

The news of the reboot being a hoax left many fans disappointed, particularly the LGBTQ+ community, who have long held the show in high regard for its progressive and inclusive storylines. “The Golden Girls” tackled subjects like the AIDS crisis, same-sex marriage, and LGBTQ+ rights in a groundbreaking manner, cementing its status as a trailblazer during its run in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

“The actors were all staunch LGBTQ+ allies as well,” said entertainment journalist Emma Vigeland. “Bea Arthur, who played Dorothy, left $300,000 to a shelter for gay homeless teenagers in her will, and Betty White, who played Rose, spoke up in support of same-sex marriage in 2010.”

Groundbreaking Representation and Storylines

One of the most notable episodes was “72 Hours,” where Rose Nylund (Betty White) discovers she may have been exposed to HIV during a medical procedure, challenging the misconception that AIDS was a disease exclusive to the LGBTQ+ community.

Another iconic moment was when Blanche (Rue McClanahan) helped two gay men get married, further highlighting the show’s progressive stance on LGBTQ+ issues.

“Although the ‘Golden Girls’ reboot might be fake, no one can take away the 180 episodes of the show that still exist, and that really have stood the test of time incredibly well,” noted TV critic James Poniewozik. “Maybe it’s time for a rewatch?”
