A “Roseanne” Revival On The Way

Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert are set to re-team on screen for an eight-episode event series revival of iconic ABC sitcom “Roseanne”.

The family sitcom centered on the blue collar Conner family in Illinois and ran from 1988-1997. At its peak, Roseanne ranked as the top series on television during the 1989-1990 season.

No word if fellow co-stars Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki would also return, or on Goodman’s return as the finale revealed his character Dan had actually died of a heart attack.

Barr and Gilbert would exec produce the new episodes with Tom Werner and Bruce Helford. The revival is currently being shopped to networks, with Netflix among the suitors bidding on the project.
