The key players from the ABC sitcom “Roseanne,” which was one of the biggest comedy hits of the 1990s, are getting back together for a new version of the show, Nellie Andreeva reports on Deadline.com.

“I hear an eight-episode limited series revival of the hit ABC blue-collar family comedy ‘Roseanne’ is in the works with the key cast members reprising their roles, including Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, with Laurie Metcalf and others in the process of joining them,” Andreeva writes in an exclusive.

“The new installment is executive produced by the original series’ EPs Tom Werner, Barr and Bruce Helford as well as Gilbert and Whitney Cummings, with Helford and Cummings co-running,” the report adds. “The project is currently in the marketplace, with multiple networks bidding, including original ‘Roseanne’ home ABC, and Netflix, which has been staging reboots of classic sitcoms including ‘Full House’ and ‘One Day at a Time,’ along with new installments of cult favorites ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Gilmore Girls.'”


  1. Stupid. Why can’t writers do some original stuff??

  2. What character is John Goodman going to play? The writers should watch the final episode of the last two seasons, of the original show. The final episode of the original Roseanne series, explained that John Goodman’s character (Dan Connor) died at the end of the previous season. The entire last season of the original Roseanne was a dream sequence. Let’s see how creative the new writers are in explaining Dan Connor’s return from the dead.

  3. This story has been around for about two weeks. Roseanne has been working on scenes to resolve the Dan issue. Currently, according to Roseanne, Dan faked his own death (reason to revealed). But this is hardly breaking news as this has been on facebook (not necessarily a reliable source) for at least a week if not longer.
