'Roseanne' is returning to ABC in 2018

Roseanne

ABC has announced that Roseanne will return for an eight-episode revival to air in Spring 2018. Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) are all set to reprise their original roles, although Johnny Galecki, who played David, can not because of his commitments to the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory".

Not only were Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman gathered together, but so was the Connors' living room couch.

The forthcoming Roseanne reboot was reportedly set in motion by Sara Gilbert, who now serves as host and executive producer on daytime talk show, The Talk.

Barr has previously suggested that one fix would be that Dan had faked his own death. Barr and Gilbert will be serving as executive producers on the series alongside producers Tom Werner and Bruce Helford, as well as comedian Whitney Cummings.




"Roseanne" consistently dominated the ratings during its nine seasons thanks to its groundbreaking portrayal of a realistic blue-collar Midwest family. Deadline says Goranson will play Becky, while Chalke "will also appear in another role" (note Chalke made a cameo during the show's 1995 Halloween episode, after Goranson had rejoined the cast). They'll all return for the anticipated revival, with Chalke taking on a new role, according to the LA Times.

As for the question of which Becky will return, the answer is both of them.

The series finale of "Roseanne" revealed that Dan, played by St. Louis native Goodman, had died, and that the last season, which included the Conners winning the lottery, had been a fantasy. Barr was nominated for four Emmys and won one along with a Golden Globe.
