If you’ve heard the news of The Nanny on HBO Max, you may want to know if there’s a way to watch The Nanny online for free if you’re not an HBO Max subscriber. (Don’t worry. We’ll explain how to do that later.)
The Nanny premiered on CBS in November 1993 and ran for six seasons until its finale in June 1999. The sitcom starred Fran Drescher as Fran Fine, a Jewish fashionista from Flushing, Queens, New York, who becomes a nanny to three British children from New York’s high society. The show, which was inspired by Drescher’s own childhood in Queens, was created and executive produced by Drescher and her then-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson. Since its finale, The Nanny, which earned Drescher two Golden Globe nominations and one Emmy nomination, has inspired foreign adaptations across the world, but there’s nothing like the original.
More than 20 years after its premiere, The Nanny remains as one of the most popular sitcoms of all times, which may explain why HBO Max wants it in its library. The Nanny started streaming on HBO Max on March 31, 2021, and for fans who still want more, a Broadway musical based on The Nanny is also in the works. The musical will be co-created by Drescher and Jacobson, as well as feature music from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom. Until then, we’ll just binge-watch The Nanny on HBO Max 24/7. Ahead is how to watch The Nanny online for free if you don’t yet have an HBO Max subscription.
