'Roseanne' Officially Back At ABC

Roseanne is officially back at ABC with eight new episodes planned!

TVLine reports:

ABC, the landmark comedy’s original network, has beat out Netflix for rights to an eight-episode present-day revival featuring pretty much the entire original cast, including titular star Roseanne Barr, leading man John Goodman (Dan) and supporting players Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (original Becky)

Sarah Chalke, who shared the role of Becky with Goranson, will appear in “another role,” per ABC.

“We’re rebooting Roseanne,” ABC president Channing Dungey confirmed Tuesday on a conference call with reporters, adding that the continuation “is planned for midseason.”

According to the official press release: 

Roseanne 2.0 will find the Conner family dealing “with the economic challenges of living pay check to pay check in 2018.”

We've missed you, Conners!!

I hope this whole thing fails. Period. Rosanne is a horrible person. Perhaps people should read her tweets.

I hope they do not replace Mark's character and that they deal with the actors death is a real and sensitive manner.

Knowing how creative the writers are, they'll figure it out in a way that is really humorous. Keep in mind, though, that both Shelley Winters and Debbie Reynolds are gone and can't be on the show anymore, except in flashbacks using past footage.

Knowing Roseanne's writers, they will figure out a way to find the humor in it and make jokes that put us at ease and continue the story.

would be neat to see Roseanne wakes up in a hospital bed from a comma due to a car accident where mark was killed and she basically had dreamed everything from the last season.... she wakes up in 2018

In the final episode it was revealed that none of that happened, it was all Roseanne writing a book and fantasizing after the loss of Dan.

That will probably be undone, along with dan's death. Maybe that was a dream?
