The most popular blue-collar sitcom family from the ’90s is looking to get back together. EW confirms that a Roseanne revival is currently in the works, though a source says there’s no deal and the project is being shopped around.
Deadline.com, the first on the news, reports that original cast members Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, and Laurie Metcalf are among those set for the comeback for a limited eight-episode series, while Barr and Gilbert are said to executive produce with Tom Werner and Bruce Helford. The trade also notes that ABC (the show’s original home) and Netflix (which is at the forefront of series revivals) are in a bidding war for the reboot.
While appearing on The Talk in March, John Goodman joined Sara Gilbert for a hilarious reunion sketch. When asked if he wanted to potentially return for a revival, Goodman gave a whopping “hell yes!”
