Alfre Woodard, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, and Regina King are starring in an a reimaginging of the beloved show for a Zoom watch party from 9-10 tonight.

"In an effort to further engage our community and drive change, all you need to do to enjoy this evening is sign up to receive messages about how you can make a change during this election!," the sign up page for the event reads. "This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change - the nation's largest online racial justice organization."

The original "Golden Girls", which ran from 1985 to 1992, starred Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty as a group of senior citizens living in Florida. Over the course of the show's run, the characters dealt with issues in a way that was progressive for its time.

Ross shared a video on her Instagram account which appears to show her cast in White's role as Rose Nylund, King in Arthur's role of Dorothy Zbornak, Lathan in McClanahan's role as Blanche Devereaux, and Woodward recast in Getty's role of Sophia Petrillo.
