The show goes on.
Betty White was set to celebrate her 100th birthday on Jan. 17 and the big event was to debut for one-night-only in theaters.
However, the Hollywood icon passed way on Dec. 31 at the age of 99, just weeks before the big milestone.
But true to White’s show biz roots, the special tribute celebration titled, “Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration” will still go on as planned despite Friday’s tragic news.
The event’s producers, Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein told The Post that the film will still premiere next month.
“Our hearts mourn today with the passing of Betty White. During the many years we worked with her, we developed a great love and admiration for Betty as a person, and as an accomplished entertainer,” they said.
“We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the ‘luckiest broad on two feet’ to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long,” the producers continued.
They added, “We will go forward with our plans to show the film on January 17 in hopes our film will provide a way for all who loved her to celebrate her life — and experience what made her such a national treasure.”
The movie was set to showcase the “Golden Girls” alum’s life behind-the-scenes, her advocacy for animals and friendships with her peers, friends and family.
Her 100th birthday bash will also be in the show, with a guest list that includes stars Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendie Malick and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Highlight reels from her long and prominent career was to be featured in the show, along with footage from her appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and her roles on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Proposal” and “Hot in Cleveland.”
Tickets are on sale for the event now.
White’s career spans nearly eight decades. In 1952, White co-created and starred in a Saturday-night sitcom called “Life with Elizabeth” — becoming one of TV’s rare female producers and earning her first Emmy nomination.
After decades in the spotlight, White’s more recent years were spent as America’s grandma.
Fans gathered outside White’s home Friday afternoon to pay their respects.
“We were hoping she would make it to 100,” Michael Douglas, 37 of LA, told The Post while wearing a “Golden Girls” face mask. “She was so sweet and caring. She was America’s grandmother. I saw my grandma in her. Our parents grew up watching her, and then we grew up watching her shows. I’m just very sad.”
White had been open throughout the course of her life about not wanting to have kids. Although she was married three times, she didn’t have biological children.
In a 2012 interview with CBS, the “Hot in Cleveland” actress discussed why she chose not to be a mom and if she regretted the decision.
“No, I’ve never regretted it,” she said. “I’m so compulsive about stuff, I know if I had ever gotten pregnant, of course, that would have been my whole focus. But I didn’t choose to have children because I’m focused on my career. And I just don’t think as compulsive as I am that I could manage both.”
