It’s Supposed to be a Modern Take on the Classic ‘Golden Girls’
While Netflix hasn't confirmed the series, there have been subtle hints, and some not so subtle hints, from Jane Lynch and Carole Leifer, according to Today.com.
Apparently this is a comedy series to be on the same type of premise of the "Golden Girls," but, not a reboot. The characters will not be the same, so don't be alarmed. They are not re-casting Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia. In my opinion, nobody could redo those roles.
This is what Jane Lynch had to say:
"We’re our age, which you know, I’m almost 60 and (Cyndi is) 65, and we’re looking for our next act without having husbands or children," she said of the plot. "And there will be two other folks in it who haven’t been cast yet. So it’s kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today."
