More than two decades after it ended its turn on ABC, the sitcom "Roseanne" will return to the network in 2018 — and Utah native Roseanne Barr will be joined by the entire original cast.
ABC has ordered eight episodes, which will feature Barr (as Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky). And Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in Season 6, 7 and 9, will also appear in another role.
"The Conners' joys and struggles are as relevant – and hilarious – today as they were then, and there's really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne," said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.
