"In a '90s kind of a world, I'm glad a got my girls."

Below is the synopsis of "Living Single," per IMDb.

Follows the lives of several single male and female roommates and friends in 1990s Brooklyn, New York.

Queen Latifah spoke out and said "Living Single" inspired "Friends." But Black Twitter got involved and accused "Friends" of whitewashing and ripping off "Living Single." The shows are both set in New York and built around twenty-somethings navigating their way through relationships and careers—and having each other's backs along the way. (Hmm...)

"Living Single" premiered in the fall of 1993 and remained a top five sitcom among black households for all five seasons. The show definitely resonated. "Living Single" followed six friends (four women and two men) who all live in a Brooklyn brownstone together, and highlighted their struggles and triumphs within their love lives and careers.

Viewers fell in love with all six characters. Khadijah James (played by Queen Latifah) was a fierce and independent, but often times stressed, magazine owner. Synclaire James-Jones was Khadijah's kindhearted, but eccentric cousin and receptionist to Flavor magazine. We all have a friend like Maxine "Max" Felice Shaw—strong, smart and successful, but she doesn't cook; she often stayed in her friend's fridge. Kyle Barker was a clean-cut brother and stockbroker who was always at Max's throat, but it turned out the two were always in love with each other. Overton "Obie" Wakefield Jones was a good dude, Synclaire's love interest, and the building's handyman. And then there's Regina "Regine" Hunter—the pure definition of what it means to be black and boujee.

The show is now available on Hulu, which has only made a reboot a more prevalent topic among fans. Vibe reported:

Now, this is one reboot worth having. Living Single, the series that welcomed Khadijah, Synclaire, Obie, and Maxine into our lives in the ’90s, might be the next show on the reboot train.

Erika Alexander dropped a very noticeable clue on Instagram on July 30, with a funny pun. “Anyone know how to ‘reboot’ this?” she questioned while pointing to her laptop.

And E! News talked with Kim Coles, who said the six former cast members will reunite, but she couldn't reveal much. 

ET caught up with Kim Coles at the inaugural Wendy Williams Hunter Give Back Gala in NYC on Wednesday where she was asked if a reboot is on the way and, at first, she remained pretty cagey. “[Queen Latifah’s] been talking, listen what [I'd] love to say is that I have been neither contacted nor contracted. However, something is happening next month that I cannot talk about and that’s all I’m gonna say.”
When pressed, Coles added: “That’s all I can say. The six of us together; a reboot-ish. That’s all I can say.” Sounds like fans of the beloved ‘90s sitcom are in for something special in the days ahead, even if it's not the classic show's return.

"Get to steppin'! Step!"

Below is the synopsis of "Martin," per IMDb.

Sassy sitcom centering on radio and television personality Martin Payne. Series focuses on his romantic relationship with girlfriend Gina, her best friend Pam and escapades with best friends Tommy and Cole.

"Martin" may not have had the same level of crossover appeal as other sitcoms, but the series was super popular in the '90s and a ratings winner for FOX. It was laugh-out-loud funny and built a stable of popular catchphrases like "Tommy, you ain't got no job," "My mama's biscuits," "Oh my goodness," "Damn, Gina!" and "You go, girl." Yep, "Martin" remains a fixture for millennials thanks to syndication.

Recently the cast reunited, only adding fuel to revival rumors. Martin Lawrence told TMZ

“Never say never. We don’t know nothing right now, but never say never.”
