Fans all over the globe mourned the death of Betty White in December, just days before her 100th birthday, though the iconic actress’ legacy will continue to live on. Her birthday celebration was set to be accompanied by the release of Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration, which (as of this writing) will still be shown across 900 theaters across the United States on January 17th. The movie highlights some of White’s most iconic roles including Hot in Cleveland, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and many more.
Of course, White is best-known for starring in The Golden Girls, which first premiered back in 1985. The comedy series followed the lives of four women living together in Miami, getting into hijinks and developing deep friendships along the way. The star-studded cast featured White as Rose Nylund, Rue McClanahan as Blanche Devereaux, Bea Arthur as Dorothy Zbornak and Estelle Getty as Sophia Petrillo.
The Emmy-winning sitcom ran for seven seasons, amassing numerous accolades for White and the cast. The comedy series even spun-off a sequel of sorts: The Golden Palace, which featured the “girls” (minus Arthur’s Dorothy) renovating and running a hotel in Miami.
Though the show has been off the air for more than three decades, you can now find The Golden Girls online, with numerous ways to stream or download the series from home. Here’s what you need to know to watch The Golden Girls online.
