Here we go again…April 28, 2017 at 11:31 am #1202079133
I hope they just make it so that last season never happened, but utilize plot elements like Darlene having her baby into the show.
I feel that Roseanne is one of those writers/actors who really need to live the lifestyle in order to actually write it and play it. As she got more rich and famous, the show lost something. That was even before that awful lottery season.
I hope they use the original Becky. She was more fitting for the role than Sarah Chalke.April 28, 2017 at 11:32 am #1202079134

This is awesome, as long as they sort of forget that last season and return the show to its roots. This was the show I mentioned should get a revival on that thread, so obviously you have me to thank for this. Roseanne must have read it and said, “well if this guy wants it, I better get to work” I wonder which Becky they’ll bring back. I also hope Estelle Parsons can come back even though she was a bit annoying sometimes, I was hoping they would do a revival before she passed since she’s almost 90. They definitely gotta bring back Martin Mull, Fred Willard and Sandra Bernhard as well.April 28, 2017 at 12:53 pm #1202079180
I love that we live in the age of revivals! So many shows are coming back. Shows that were absolutelt brilliant in their prime. Mark my words next one will be Married with Children. Oh, and of course dense people on internet are complaining ‘how is it possible that Goodman is back? Dan’s dead!’ Those bloody idiots. Just like new Will and Grace they’re gonna pretend the shitty finale (and in case of Roseanne the whole season) has never happened. And thank god for that! Another show from the past that I could see returning is Desperate Housewives and in their case they will also pretend the crappy finale has never happened. We should be glad for those revivals. Thanks to them they can repair their mistakes which in many cases was godawful finale.April 28, 2017 at 12:59 pm #1202079187
Parsons, who was absolutely fantastic and Emmy-calibur on Grace and Frankie last year, better be back.

Glad to know she’s been working so recently. The last time I saw her was on the good wife 3 or 4 years ago.April 28, 2017 at 2:29 pm #1202079241

Roseanne is among my all-time favorite shows but it went to shit the moment Amy Sherman-Palladino left the writing staff after Season 6. So, presuming she won’t return, I’m skeptical.
Amy’s presence was only really major in seasons 4-6, and it wasn’t like she dominated the show like she did Gilmore girls. She was a singular voice there.
None of these revivals have hit just the right spot. But I remain hopeful that one of them will get it right.April 28, 2017 at 10:16 pm #1202079578

I feel like Netflix is going to get this.April 29, 2017 at 9:32 am #1202079889
Retconning not only a series finale but pretty much the entire final season sets a bad precedent all around for shows (and viewers) that legitimately want a proper close to a work. And in “Roseanne” case, you wrote and filmed that shit, now own and live with it. I think it’s only “forgiven” for them (“Will & Grace” too) based on the high viewer affection/nostalgia for the shows themselves and those very talented ensembles. I’ll watch both revivals b/c I adored both shows in their respective runs, but I’m skeptical that they won’t match up to the originals and possibly tarnish their overall reputations in the process.April 29, 2017 at 1:05 pm #1202079972
Why do you guys think they would have to retcon the entire final season? Only the last episode should be and I don’t think that would be a big deal.May 16, 2017 at 12:10 pm #1202094746
It’s officially coming back: Roseanne Revival Lands at ABC
I’m so fucking happy! Although I wish we would get at least ten episodes but eight is still good too. Now I can officially pretend that ninth season never happened. Bring it on! Oh and now all the fuckers who hate revivals can shit on it. I have most of them on ignore. Go Roseanne!
