But how will they bring Dan back from the grave?
In the late 80s and early 90s, my family watched a ton of Roseanne. And with the power of syndication, it felt like the 9 season sitcom starring Roseanne Barr was on TV all the time.
It was made official by ABC that they will be bringing back the sitcom. Sara Gilbert was behind the resurrection of the show. She played Darlene in the series and will be an executive producer. Roseanne is back. John Goodman will play Dan (though it was revealed he died of a heart attack in season 9 sooooooo). Johnny Galecki played David, Darlene’s husband, he should be there as well as Laurie Metcalf as Roseanne’s sister Jackie.
Michael Fishman, please tell me you’ll be back as D.J. Conner…. yes he will.
As for Becky…maybe it would be hilarious if they choose a new actress to play her once again? (two actors played ‘Becky:’ Lecy Goranson season 1-5 [and 8] & Sarah Chalke 6-9)
So what could Roseanne 2018 look like? This is Barr’s blog post from 2009 where she throws around some story ideas. I love all of them.
