Iconic comedy series “Roseanne” will return to ABC. The eight-episode reboot, featuring the original cast – Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) – will air in 2018. Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in later seasons, will also appear in another role.

When it premiered on ABC, the series broke new ground for its realistic portrayal of a working-class family, the Conners, barely scraping by in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois.  It also dominated the ratings as one of the highest-rated television series on the air for its near-decade run. A comedy about ordinary people who faced day-to-day survival with a sense of the absurdity of it all, the inimitable Roseanne was its epicenter.  Lauded for its humor, relevance, warmth and honesty, the Conner family will continue to deal with the economic challenges of living pay check to pay check in 2018.  In its nine seasons on ABC, in addition to being a primetime ratings hit, the series won a Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award for best television series (comedy or musical). Barr and Goodman each won Golden Globes for best performance by an actress and actor. Barr went on to win an Emmy as lead actress, and Metcalf won two supporting actress Emmys for her work on the series.

    canceled in 1 season

  4. GreysALIASAnatomy says:

    The ending though is what confuses me here. I assume they know what they’re doing, but she made up her story so nothing is what it seemed in the entire series.

  5. MrDrawingboard1 says:

    As hyped as I am I have two questions. One, who is returning to play Becky since she had two actresses? Two, if John Goodman is coming back, how is this going to tie in with the final season if he died all along? Is Roseanne back to her writing, are we going to forget the last season ever happened? Ah who cares, its the original gang back together again!

    I’ve enjoyed most of the reboots and revivals. Some more than others. This is one that I feel is actually necessary and relevant. Also, I am not going to lie. That got me a little emotional. I’ve missed this.
