'Roseanne' Revival Confirmed at ABC, Many Original Stars Returning!

Roseanne is officially being rebooted at ABC!

Returning to the show from the original cast are Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.), and Lecy Goranson (Becky). Sarah Chalke – who played Becky on other seasons of the show – will also appear in an undefined role.

“The Conners’ joys and struggles are as relevant — and hilarious — today as they were then, and there’s really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne,” ABC executive Channing Dungey said.

The original Roseanne aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997.

    I can watch repeats of Roseanne for hours. That show was hilarious but I’m not sure about a reboot.

    I love this show but I don’t think a reboot is necessary.

    Will they pretend the last season never happened or are the new episodes more stories from the book she wrote in the last season?

    I don’t understand John Goodman returning. Firstly, his character died. Secondly, he has a pretty decent film career these days, he doesn’t need it.

    But Dan’s dead! Will he be a ghost throughout the series or something? Also, how’s Sarah gonna be doing it if she’s busy with The Talk?
