'Roseanne' Revival Returns on ABC in March

The reboot of the popular sitcom will kick things off with a special hour-long premiere on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 8 P.M.

AceShowbiz - "Roseanne" is coming back in March! Just days after dropping a first-look photo, ABC has announced the reboot's premiere date alongside a short teaser for the highly-anticipate reboot.

The reboot of 1990s sitcom is set to come on March 27, 2018 on the network. The teaser highlights that nothing has changed from the fan-favorite family sitcom. Featuring the show's iconic living room, the 15-second teaser has "Same couch. Same cast. Same laugh" written across the screen.

According to ABC, the revival will explore life, death and everything in between. It will also tackle today's issues through the relatable, hilarious and honest lens of the Conner household.

The complete original cast are returning to reprise their roles. Among them are Roseanne Barr who plays Roseanne Conner, John Goodman who is back as her husband Dan, Sara Gilbert who once again portrays Darlene, and Alicia Goranson who reprises her role as Becky. The revival also sees the return of D.J. (Michael Fishman) and Aunt Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), with Sarah Chalke, who took over for Goranson in 1993, coming back to play a mystery role.

Additionally, the nine-episode reboot features new series regulars and notable returning guest stars. Estelle Parsons, Sandra Bernhard, Natalie West, James Pickens, Jr. and Chuck Mitchell are among the returning guest stars.

It is said that the production of "Roseanne" is set to wrap on Friday, December 15 in Studio City, California.

Executive producer Bruce Helford previously promised, "You will feel the emotion from seeing that set again." Helford, who returns to "Roseanne" after serving as its 1992-1993 showrunner, added, "It will be an extra-special experience."

"We want everybody to see something that doesn't really exist on TV anymore--an honest family," Helford spoke of "Roseanne", a series about a working-class family. "These people are very much the core of what's going on in the country right now."

Produced by Carsey-Werner Television, "Roseanne" is executive produced by Barr, Gilbert, Tom Werner, Helford, Whitney Cummings and Tony Hernandez.

"Roseanne" will kick things off with a special hour-long premiere on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 8 P.M. before moving to its regular time slot on Tuesday 8 P.M. on April 3. "The Middle", which currently airs at the slot, will move to 8.30 P.M. on that day.
