Disney+ reveals date for addition of The Golden Girls

Disney+ reveals date for addition of The Golden Girls
Disney+ announces that all seven seasons of The Golden Girls will launch on the platform this summer.

Disney+ has confirmed that the entire back catalogue of The Golden Girls will be added to the service on July 2.

The much-loved comedy, which aired between 1985 and 1992, starred Bea Arthur, Betty White, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan as four older women living together in a house in Miami.

Earlier this year it was revealed that the streaming platform was planning to make the show - a favourite among the gay community - available in the UK and Ireland and now the date has been set for July 2, with all seven seasons - some 180 episodes - being added.

The Golden Girls has been largely absent from UK screens since its original run, with Channel 5 repeating the show last year but stopping short at the end of season four.

Disney+ has yet to reveal whether it has any plans to add spinoff show The Golden Palace in the future.
