‘Roseanne’ Reboot to Reunite Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, and More

20 years after ending its nine season run on ABC, Roseanne is reportedly coming back to TV. The move follows similar revivals by shows like Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace and The X-Files. All major members of the fictional blue-collar Conner family are expected to reappear on the rebooted eight-episode limited series, including Roseanne Barr, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman as patriarch Dan Conner, despite the fact it was revealed in the 1997 series finale that his character had died after having a heart attack a year earlier. In 2009, Barr wrote on her website that if she were to bring the show back, she would bring Goodman back by saying that Dan had faked his own death.
