Otherwise, the aspects of Roseanne that made the series so unlike everything else on TV would be gone, and the revival would have nothing to distinguish it from other shows, aside from nostalgia.

The show, which starred Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, Roseanne won three Golden Globes and seven Primetime Emmy Awards for its comedic portrayal of a dysfunctional American family. What makes this revival news so freakish, however, is the conclusion of the original Roseanne series retconned the entire show to a book Barr's character had been writing, changing all of the bad things in her life "for the story".

Roseanne aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997, hit No. 1 in the Nielsen ratings in 1990, and stayed in the top four across six of its nine seasons.

One original star, Johnny Galecki, has his own contemporary top-rated sitcom, CBS's The Big Bang Theory.

Bryant said he sacrificed a good job but that his wife really wanted to be closer to Kelly to pursue the affair. Bryant claims that his efforts to rehabilitate the marriage failed because he 'could not prevail against R.

The return of Goodman may surprise fans since it was revealed in the series finale that his character, Dan, had actually died of a heart attack and the final season was all in the imagination of Roseanne.

It will be the latest classic series to return from the dead as of late, joining "Full House", "Prison Break", "Gilmore Girls", "The X-Files", "Arrested Development" and the upcoming "Will & Grace".

The new season is being produced by Barr and Gilbert, and apparently multiple networks are bidding for the rights, including Netflix and the show's original broadcaster ABC.

Tell Us: Are you excited for a possible Roseanne revival? Add to that the fact that Roseanne Barr laid out her plans for where each of the show's characters would end up in the future, and it seems like this reboot was in the cards for a while.

While the Celtics only have Isaiah Thomas and young role players, the Bulls have Jimmy Butler , Dwyane Wade , and Rajon Rondo . The Celtics were outhustled in the offensive glass in both games, and fell behind by double digits early in Game 2 .

Roseanne drew big ratings and critical praise for its a groundbreaking look at a working-class IL family, the Conners, at a time when affluent clans were more the rule for sitcoms.

Deadline also reports that the show intends to get all the principal actors from the original in some capacity for the reboot.

Twitter was divided in its enthusiasm for more "Roseanne". No word on which Becky will return, though.
