Prepare to queue up Reba McEntire's hit single "I'm a Survivor" and have it stuck in your head for weeks thanks to Netflix. The Grammy Award-winning country music superstar's eponymous sitcom Reba finally makes its way back to Netflix in May 2024. The opening credits sequence of McEntire have been a recurring online meme, but it's time to relive its origin.

All six seasons of the sitcom, which began its run in 2001 on The WB for five seasons before ending its run with season 6 on The CW in 2007, land on Netflix on Monday, May 6, 2024. The series comprised of 127 episode arrives at midnight PT on May 6, though if you're on the East Coast of the United States, the series drops at 3 a.m. But night owls can get started on Reba ASAP!

Over the years, Reba has maintained popularity in both streaming and cable syndication. If you're a millennial, you likely watching episodes on ABC Family after school. Remember those days? But the series continues to simultaneously stream on Hulu, and it's also available to watch on various cable networks like CMT and UPtv among others. It's such a special show and still a fan-favorite.

In the series, McEntire stars as Houston, Texas single mother Reba Hart, who's recently divorced from her husband of two decades, Brock (Christopher Rich), after his affair with the larger-than-life Barbra Jean (Melissa Peterman).

When they move in next door to Reba, it's added stress as she raises her three children: Cheyenne (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), Kyra (Scarlett Pomers), and Jake (Mitch Holleman). Adding to the family's chaos, Cheyenne and her jock boyfriend Van (Steve Howey) announce they're having a baby at 16 years old. It's a lot to handle for one dysfunctional family!

Over the years, there has been talk about the possibility of rebooting Reba and getting the cast back together for another edition of the hit series. Even McEntire herself mentioned in September 2022 that she's "really been trying hard to do a reboot," but nothing has come to fruition. Instead, the country star is working on a new sitcom for NBC with Peterman appearing in a guest starring role. It seems she's getting her reboot one way or another, and we love to see it.

Back in the wake of the show's cancellation in 2007, the president of 20th Century Fox Television, which produced the series, opined that the sitcom didn't have the opportunity to realize its full potential on small but mighty network The WB. Gary Newman said, "I’m convinced that it could have been a big hit on CBS or ABC."

While that may be true, he never could have known then that the show would live on for years and years and become a cult classic. Success is in the eye of the beholder, after all, and Reba will be a success once again on Netflix.
