‘Roseanne’ Getting Revival With Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert & Co.

One of the biggest comedies of the 1990s, Roseanne, is making a comeback. I hear an eight-episode limited series revival of the hit ABC blue-collar family comedy is in the works with the key cast members reprising their roles, including Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, with Laurie Metcalf and others in the process of joining them. The new installment, produced by the original series’ executive producers Tom Werner, Barr and Bruce Helford as well as Gilbert, is currently in the marketplace, with multiple networks bidding, including Roseanne original home ABC, and Netflix, which has been staging reboots of classic sitcoms, including Full House and One Day At a Time, along with new installments of cult favorites Arrested Development and Gilmore Girls.

Just like with the upcoming new season of Will & Grace, which considered a streaming play before closing a deal at NBC where the original series had aired, ABC is considered the sentimental choice to air the new Roseanne episodes.

Roseanne remains a gold standard for its realistic portrayal of a working-class American family. It centered on the Conners who lived, barely scraping by, in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois. The revival comes as networks, and particularly ABC, are making a concerted effort to better reflect the lives of everyday Americans.

I hear the intent is for all principal Roseanne actors to appear in some capacity in the reboot, including The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki.

Like NBC’s Will & Grace‘s comeback, which was triggered by a short election-themed reunion video the stars of the series made last fall, Goodman and Gilbert too recently staged a mini Roseanne revival in a video filmed during Goodman’s visit to CBS’ The Talk, which Gilbert created, co-hosts and executive produces. (You can watch it below).

During Goodman’s interview, he was enthusiastic about doing a Roseanne reboot. “Oh, hell yes… if we could get everyone together,” he told co-host Julie Chen. “The big ‘R’ (Roseanne Barr) and I did a pilot about five years ago that didn’t go anywhere…but we were very happy to work together.”

Gilbert was more cautious when asked if she would do a reboot. “I would. Your only fear is you don’t want to do a bad version, because you don’t want to damage what’s been done.”

Roseanne, produced by indie Carsey-Werner, was a big ratings hit and ran for nine seasons on ABC. Next month, May 20, 2017, marks the 20th anniversary of the Roseanne series finale, which drew 16 million viewers. The family sitcom earned Emmy nominations for Barr, Goodman, Metcalf and Gilbert, with Barr winning one and Metcalf three statuettes.

In 2009, on her website Barr gave her detailed take on where each of the main characters from the show would be in a possible Roseanne revival — Roseanne and Jackie opening the first medical marijuana dispensary in Lanford; Dan reappearing alive after faking his death; DJ being published; Mark dying in Iraq; David leaving Darlene for a woman half his age; Darlene coming out, meeting a woman and having a baby with her; Becky working at Walmart; Arnie befriending the Governor of Illinois and remarrying Nancy, Bev selling a painting for $10,000; Jerry and the grandsons forming a boy band; and Bonnie being arrested for selling crack.

    Didn't Dan (Goodman's character) die and the show ended up being a coping mechanism of grief in the wife's head? Never saw the show regularly but I remember that pissing people off. Where can you even go from there? Unless you ignore it.

    Yea. And they won the lotto. Was no point to the show after that once they weren't white trash no more.

    Well, no..not "and". They didn't actually win the lotto. In the series finale, we find out the show (mainly the last season) is all a book Roseanne is writing to, like Broddie said, cope with Dan's death the season before.

    It retcons the lotto BS and ties the show back to something that happened in like season 1...Dan building a writing room for Roseanne that we never saw again.

    But the reboot would be a pretty different show if it follows the "real" story instead of what Roseanne was writing. Dan dead, Jackie would be gay, Darlene was with Mark, not David...David was with Becky, not Darlene...etc.

    But they could just say she's still writing and everything would be as we remembered. Theyd have to say they spent all the lotto money tho lol

    The second Becky will be playing a different character.

    That trailer is hilarious. lmao @ the episode where Dan, Roseanne and Jackie get high, and Jackie trying to tell that deaf relative their Dad died.
