John Goodman's 'Roseanne' Character Won't Be Dead in Reboot

John Goodman's 'Roseanne' Character Won't Be Dead in Reboot

It was announced earlier in the year that Roseanne, ABC’s hit TV show from the 90s, would be revived – but fans noticed something odd about the reboot.

John Goodman‘s character Dan was revealed to have died during the final episode in the series, which aired in 1997.

Now, ABC is revealing that John‘s character is actually alive.

“I don’t want to talk too specifically, but I wouldn’t say we’ll ignore the events of the finale,” ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said during the ABC TCA panel on Sunday. “Dan is definitely still alive.”

Roseanne Barr, Sara Gilbert, John, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson are all expected to return for the new show. Production is expected to start in October.
