Every Golden Girls Episode Will Soon Be on Hulu

Golden Girls

Thank you for being a friend, Hulu.

The subscription on-demand service will soon offer the The Golden Girls library, becoming the first to offer the entirety of the beloved series on one platform.

The news was announced Saturday by Craig Erwich, Hulu's senior vice president and head of content, at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour.

"This marks the first time that the complete library of one of the most popular sitcoms will be available to stream all in one place — on Hulu," said Erwich, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

All episodes will be available to stream February 13, which is also "Galentine's Day," an annual event celebrating female friendship on the eve of Valentine's Day. The day was popularized by a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks & Recreation.

The Golden Girls, which starred Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty as older friends in Miami, originally aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992. Its nontraditional leads, as well as its early tackling of issues like marriage equality and coming out, endeared the series to many LGBT fans.

Hulu is a joint venture of several prominent entertainment companies, including 21st Century Fox Entertainment, Comcast, and The Walt Disney Company. The addition of Golden Girls was part of its renewed deal with Disney.
