Netflix Announced a Bunch of Black TV Classics Will Start Streaming This Fall

Glamour

Sister, Sister, along with a great lineup of Black-led classics from BET, UPN, and the WB, are finally making their way to Netflix. 

Strong Black Lead, a Netflix Twitter account run by a team of Black Netflix execs devoted to amplifying projects by and for people of color, announced the news on July 29. 

“Time to pop bottles,” the account posted alongside a list of shows hitting Netflix from August through October. Who better to spread the good news than Tracee Ellis Ross, Tia and Tamera Mowry, Pooch Hall, Shar Jackson, and more icons from the list?

“I am so excited to announce some really incredible, super-exciting news,” the actors said. “One on One, Half & Half, The Parkers, Sister, Sister, Moesha, The Game, Girlfriends [are] coming to Netflix…. I am beyond humbled and honored at how much the fans continue ride hard for this show years later, and how it's made a huge impact on the culture. These shows changed the face of television as we know it."

“I could use some laughs right about now,” Mara Brock Akil, prolific creator of shows like Girlfriends and The Game, jumped in before the group shared that Netflix users have been asking for these shows for “years, years, and, like, years.” 

That's clearly true, as the tweet already had over 97,000 retweets since 11 a.m. E.T. “We've seen every comment and request about getting these classics on Netflix, and we want to thank the fans for riding so hard. We're excited to relive these moments with you," the Twitter account added. 

Naturally, fans had a big reaction. “This is just…I'm emotional!!!!!” @TheJessieWoo tweeted. Someone else wrote, “LETS GOOO!! I’m bout to binge Moesha!”

Who else can't wait to start streaming? For a full list of what shows are coming and when, see the Strong Black Lead tweet, above.
