“Hot in Cleveland” had over 128 episodes, many of which featured Betty White, who by the end of the show was 92 years old.

But in Cleveland, the trio found a home that defied their expectations, and the three women decided to settle down. At the new home, they encountered Betty White’s character, Elka.

When Betty White originally accepted the role of Elka, the caretaker of the property where the three women found themselves, she was supposed to only appear in the pilot episode.
