The Roseanne reboot has wrapped production on its nine episode season. The family comedy will return next year with almost all of the original cast. A new teaser trailer shows just a few moments of the cast meeting for a table read of a script and it’s great to see the cast back together and laughing again.
We definitely missed the laughter Dan and Roseanne brought to our home each week. The original show aired from 1988 through 1997 and was the most watched show on TV in 1989 and 1990.
The show will premiere on March 27, 2018 on ABC.
About the show
Iconic comedy series “Roseanne” will return to ABC. The nine-episode reboot, featuring the original cast – Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) – 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. In its nine seasons on ABC, in addition to being a primetime ratings hit, the series won a Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award for best television series (comedy or musical). Barr and Goodman each won Golden Globes for best performance by an actress and actor. Barr went on to win an Emmy as lead actress, and Metcalf won two supporting actress Emmys for her work on the series.
