Netflix is adding seven iconic Black sitcoms to its streaming library starting this weekend. The '90s shows being added to the platform include Moesha, its spinoff The Parkers, The Game, Sister, Sister, Girlfriends, Half & Half, and One on One.

Netflix’s Twitter announcement of the new additions included some heartfelt messages from stars of the shows, including Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends), Tia Mowry (Sister, Sister and The Game) and Tamera Mowry-Housley (Sister, Sister), Shar Jackson (Moesha), and Dorien Wilson (The Parkers).

The shows will be joining classics like Moonlight and Beyonce’s Homecoming on the “Strong Black Lead” page. Needless to say, the internet is very excited about the new content coming to Netflix.
