Mama, we made it! Our internet-streaming-service dreams have finally come true. Living Single, the groundbreaking ’90s television show starring Queen Latifah, will begin streaming on Hulu on Thursday.
Hulu made the announcement Tuesday evening from its official Twitter account, saying, “It’s a ’90s kind of world. Again. Living Single, the entire series, streams January 11, only on Hulu.”
The tweet came complete with a promotional video to get us hype.
Living Single was my favorite ’90s sitcom because it showed black women as friends, sisters and in kinship—all walking with one another through the regular life dramas of career, family, romance and being young, black and carefree.
Latifah played Khadijah James, and Kim Coles, Kim Fields, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson and John Henton rounded out the cast, playing Khadijah’s cousin Synclaire; her childhood best friend, Regina “Regine” Hunter; her college best friend, attorney Maxine Shaw; and friendly neighbors Kyle Barker and Overton Wakefield Jones, respectively.
This is the show Friends wanted to be.
This is the first time the show has ever been offered on a streaming site.
I have always fancied myself a combination of Khadijah and Regine. I know everyone has done this, so let me know in the comments which character you are.
And don’t forget—all five seasons will be available for streaming on Hulu on Jan. 11.
