Roseanne Barr Says 'Of Course I Want to Do' a 'Roseanne' Reboot

Few shows have been courageous enough to tackle the territory Roseanne did. Netflix is also said to be in the bidding war to nab the revival.

Following revivals of shows like "The X-Files", "Full House" and " "Will & Grace", "Roseanne" is the next show to get in on the action, reports Deadline.

Roseanne Barr let some of the steam out from the hype surrounding the Roseanne revival.

Tell Us: Are you excited for a possible Roseanne revival?

Roseanne, an iconic hit sitcom that ran on ABC from 1988 to 1997, could be coming back to TV with its original cast and producers.

Deadline reports that all of the original Roseanne cast members are on board for a revival of the classic sitcom, and it's now being shopped around to networks.


The announcement comes after John Goodman and Sara Gilbert recently staged a small reunion on an episode of The Talk. The series also starred Laurie Metcalf-who won multiple Emmys for her portrayal of Roseanne's sister, Jackie-as well as "Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki and Estelle Parsons. Having the show without Dan would be impossible, and Barr seemed to agree as far back as 2009.

For one, John Goodman is returning, but - spoiler alert - his character died in the series finale. However, the sentimental choice would be for the show to end up on ABC given that the network was Roseanne's original home.

During Goodman's interview, he was enthusiastic about doing a "Roseanne" reboot.

One of TV's landmark shows is looking to join the revival trend, and it may be the most shocking return yet.

He went on: 'The Big R and I did a pilot that didn't go anywhere ... but we were very happy to work together'. Yet Goodman will be on the new cast, so we'll see how they handle that.
