The Golden Girls (1985 - 1992)




Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.



Series Info

Four mature single women share a house in Miami in a long-running ensemble sitcom that's enjoyed a resurgent popularity among younger viewers since repeats began airing on Lifetime. A two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, the smart Susan Harris-created sitcom dealt wittily (and often movingly) with aspects of friendship and aging, and earned awards for all four of its principal actresses.
Creator: Susan Harris

Critics Consensus: Worth its weight in laughs, The Golden Girls' first season brings together an outrageously talented cast of television veterans and a raunchy sensibility that proves youth needn't be wasted on the young.
