“Roseanne,” one of TV’s rare working-class comedies, will return to ABC two decades after it wrapped its hit run.
“I’m happy to be back,” Barr said. “We did this show for years and thought we were done talking. But we found out we have a whole lot more to say.”
Besides Barr as the Conner family matriarch, the eight-episode reboot airing in 2018 will feature John Goodman as her husband, Dan, along with former co-stars Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson. Sarah Chalke, who played Goranson’s character, Becky, in later seasons, will appear in another role, ABC said.
We can’t wait to hear this theme song back on our screens! No word yet if Darlene’s boyfriend, played by actor Johnny Galecki will make a surprise return. Something tells us he might have enough with The Big Bang Theory!
