'Living Single' Is Coming To Hulu & '90s Fans Are Totally Here For It
It goes without saying that '90s having a major moment within the realms of entertainment and fashion. Amid the many reboots and returns over the past few years, news that Living Single is finally coming to Hulu has sent fans into a complete frenzy. And honestly, who could blame them?
The predecessor of companion-based series, such as Friends and Sex And The City, Living Single became one most widely regarded African-American sitcoms of its generation, featuring the likes of Queen Latifah (Khadijah), Kim Fields (Regine), Kim Coles (Synclaire), Erika Alexander (Maxine), T.C. Carson (Kyle), and John Henson (Overton) as a tight-knit group of friends living the single life in the heart of Brooklyn. Smart, funny, and ambitious, the strong group of characters, mostly women, were easily relatable, inspiring, and entertaining to the many who tuned in religiously to watch their on-screen antics.
Plans to bring the show to Hulu were announced via the streaming network's Twitter on Jan. 9 in a tweet that would explain the full gravity of the series, which was created and produced by Yvette Lee Bowser. Along with a video of the show's memorable opening theme, the caption read, "It's a '90s kind of world. Again. Living Single, the entire series, streams January 11, only on Hulu."
The news immediately sent fans on social media into a frenzy with many expressing joy over the series' return. Reactions to the news revealed just how important the show was — and continues to be — to its devoted audience.
