The cast of Roseanne will return to televisions this fall — without Roseanne Barr — in The Conners. The spinoff, which features the remaining members of the iconic sitcom family, will officially premiere on Tuesday, October 16 — almost a month after ABC debuts its other fall programming. In addition to The Conners, the network has set fall premiere dates for several other new and returning shows, including The Good Doctor and Grey’s Anatomy.
One wouldn’t necessarily expect the Conner family to take stock of the Oscars, but Roseanne is officially going for gold. The 90th Academy Awards brought our first look at ABC’s upcoming Roseanne revival, and John Goodman’s miraculous return has not gone unnoticed.
Like Will & Grace (and perhaps now Mad About You), sitcom revivals have a habit of ignoring their own series finales. That’s certainly the case with John Goodman’s Roseanne return, and the first official promos for our 2018 revival are not afraid to poke fun.
And just like that – Roseanne Season 9 never happened. Our first formal look at the 2018 revival sees not only John Goodman back in his role as Dan Conner, but also Roseanne herself and daughter Darlene palling around the old house like nothing’s changed.
The Conners are back, and they look like they haven’t missed a step. Catch a first look at ABC’s upcoming Roseanne revival, as a new table read photo reveals both the updated Conner household, and familiar faces like John Goodman and Sarah Chalke.
