In just a few weeks, the Conners will be back on TV. And they’ve brought some familiar friends back with them.
Fans got their biggest taste yet of the new “Roseanne” return on ABC, complete with stars Roseanne Barr and John Goodman as the heads of the Conner family. Even if the world may have changed in the two decades since the series was last on the air, the new version of the show finds Roseanne and Dan back in the familiar atmosphere of the living room that made the show a household favorite for the better part of nine seasons.
(If you’re wondering how exactly Dan made it back from dying at the end of the show’s original run in 1997, the cast’s first reunion table read has some answers for you.)
In addition to Barr and Goodman, the show also brings back Laurie Metcalf, nominated on Sunday night for an Oscar for her work in “Lady Bird.” She didn’t end up winning, but seeing Jackie back in the fold starting a cake-eating contest is a prize all its own. She’s just one of a handful of cast favorites making the return “Roseanne” journey, including Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, and Sarah Chalke.
