    Hi



    I've started watching the golden girls only lately, and I had a question.


    I wondered : why did the show got canceled whereas a year later the golden palace started ?
    Was it that the actress playing Dorothy wanted to leave ?



    Thanks for your answer

    Yep, Bea Arthur felt it was time to move on.


    As for the Golden Palace thing, the 3 other ladies decided to continue.

    Bea Atrhur wanted to leave at the end of season 6 but was contracted for season 7 and them it was decided that season 7 was to be the last.
