This is a really interesting development as the revival of former ABC series that dominated the early 90s, Roseanne, doesn’t have a network to call home yet though it is out in the market hoping for a pick up.
Behind the remount, however, is Roseanne Barr (original executive producer), Tom Werner (original series producer), Bruce Helford (original executive producer), Sara Gilbert and Whitney Cumming. On top of that Roseanne Barr (obviously), John Goodman and Sara Gilbert have confirmed the will reprise their roles on the limited new season. No word if Laurie Metcalfe, Johnny Galecki or any of the other regulars are returning.
This is odd in Goodman’s case as his character died in the 8th season of the series on an episode entitled The Wedding. I’m guessing flashback or long-lost forgotten about identical twin brother.
