My 90s/2000s teen heart is feeling soooo full right now. Some of my favorite classic black sitcoms are headed to Netflix US. The Strong Black Lead Netflix account on Twitter, made the announcement in a special way by having some of the cast members share the exciting news.
I was so happy to see this I almost cried. Some people would think that’s weird but not me. Do you know how long I have been wanting to see some of these shows get the recognition they deserve?. While I am super excited for all of these, I am most excited for Sister Sister and Girlfriends to hit the streaming service in September.
Sister Sister was, and is still one of my all-time favorites especially considering I’m a twin myself. This was one of the first shows I watched about black teenage girls who happened to be twins and it was so relatable. Tia and Tamera Mowry are pop culture icons to me and their show was really something special.
Girlfriends is another show that I have been waiting to see on more networks. I had planned awhile back to do a list of black sitcoms but I held off because I could not find any streaming service that had this show on it. Girlfriends is basically the black version of Sex and the City and it ran for eight seasons. Most people probably don’t even know that Kelsey Grammer was the executive producer. Although the show has a lot of comedic elements, it deals with real issues faced by women of color. The entire cast is amazing and it’s what made me a fan of Tracee Ellis Ross.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen any of these shows, so I cannot wait.
