The reboot, which will feature returning stars Roseanne Barr and John Goodman among others, is set to air midseason.

The network has handed out an eight-episode straight-to-series order for a revival of the wildly popular family sitcom headlined by comedian Roseanne Barr. The reboot will debut sometime midseason on the network.

Original castmembers Roseanne Barr, John Goodman (despite the fact that his character Dan died of a heart attack during the final season), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) are all set to return. Sarah Chalke, who played the role of Becky after Goranson, will also return, but in a different role.

Does anyone from our generation like this show? Jocelyn HATES it and I would quickly change the channel if I ever saw it on.

Or they could take a page out of Beerfest's book and pull a Landfill's cousin move.

I never liked this show. A bunch of annoying people yelling at each other constantly is all I really remember from it. Can't imagine who will end up watching this.

Yeah but Sunny is more "we're unrealistically terrible people who do awful yet funny things while yelling at each other". Roseanne was more "we're a somewhat realistic yet very dysfunctional family that doesn't really love each other and also we're all overweight and not very funny"

I don't know if anyone watched it or not... but there were two actresses who played the oldest daughter Becky. The original one and the other one who was on How I Met Your Mother and Scrubs for a while. Both are coming back to this show, but only one is playing Becky.

I think it's because of Roseanne's voice, right?

Now I'm pumped!!

They could have maybe pretended the episode where John Goodman died didn't happen, but they went ahead and showed that in the promo.
