‘Roseanne’ with original cast members is returning to ABCEntertainment News, Online Only, Section 4A, Top Highlights Wednesday, May 17th, 2017
ABC announced Tuesday that Roseanne will be returning in 2018.
The eight-episode Roseanne reboot reunites the entire original Roseanne cast–Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky)– and 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.
