Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper are Making a 'Golden Girls For Today'

This already sounds so gay.

We may not be getting the actual Golden Girls return we deserve yet, but in a world overrun by reboots and revivals, the universe may still be finding a way to provide.

Backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys, Jane Lynch revealed that she’s been developing a comedy series that’s “kind of a Golden Girls for today.”

Jane Lynch in anything resembling a Golden Girls-esque series? Literally yes please, now.

But in case that didn’t seal the deal for you, one of Lynch’s co-stars in the hopefully-upcoming show will be 80s legend Cyndi Lauper.

“I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it,” Lynch said. “I don’t know if I can even tell you, but it’s with Cyndi Lauper, so there! We’ll see.”

Variety dug up an additional tidbit of info about the project, citing a Facebook post from former Seinfeld writer Carol Leifer shared back in July:

“It’s official, heading out next with a new half-hour comedy, starring Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper. A writer’s dream to work with these two legends.”

We know literally no other details whatsoever but it’s hard not to scream in anticipation all the same. A Golden Girls type show starring Lynch and Lauper would have to be a new staple of gay media. And with more cast members needed to round out the bunch, there’s ample opportunity to make it even gayer. 

And if the show needs a title, “Gal Pals Just Wanna Have Fun” feels like a great jumping off point...
