The Conners are coming home.
ABC is officially bringing back Roseanne for an eight-episode reboot next year.
"Roseanne" ran for nine seasons, from 1988 to 1997, ABC.
The ABC Television Network presents its new lineup for the 2017-2018 season to the advertising and media communities at Lincoln Center in New York City. It seemed each episode of the season featured a completely different, fantasy-filled, off the walls plot. By making things even stranger.
A year earlier, Roseanne had visited a gay bar with Nancy and was kissed on the lips by guest star Mariel Hemingway. One clue is that, in 2009, the Roseanne Barr posted a pitch for a revival on her website that included a plot point of Dan faking his death.
The show centered on the domestic lives of the Conner family, an unapologetically blue-collar clan living outside Chicago.More news: British PM says up to Trump who he shares intelligence with

And that includes both actors who played Roseanne's daughter Becky. Johnny Galecki, who played David, now stars on the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory".
Laurie Metcalf says "everything is in place" for a "Roseanne" revival, but she doesn't know when or where it might air.
ABC seems to have found a solution to the Becky problem. The show's original producing team of Barr, Tom Werner and Bruce Helford are all on board, with Gilbert also taking an executive producer's credit. They'll all return for the anticipated revival, with Chalke taking on a new role, according to the LA Times.
As for some other big announcements... Are you excited for it, or should the show have been left in the '90s?
In fact, Sarah Chalke will return as well. ABC had been competing with Netflix for the new installment of the show.
