Yesss! A new generation (and the generation that grew up on it) will get to watch A Different World in all its HBCU glory when the series comes to Netflix starting March 1! As a spin-off of The Cosby ShowA Different World followed Denise Huxtable, one of the Cosby kids, (played by Lisa Bonet), on her journey from Brooklyn to attending the imaginary Hillman College in Virginia.

This amazing show ran from 1987 to 1993, and while Bonet left after season one, the rest of the cast carried the show into Black greatness. Jasmine Guy, Cree Summer and Kadeem Hardison became household names in Black America. Jada Pinkett Smith, Loretta Devine and Sinbad later joined as main cast members. We can’t wait to binge watch!
