Roseanne is going home.
Two decades after the iconic family sitcom signed off the air, ABC has announced that they've handed out a straight-to-series order for a revival, bringing the Connor clan back to the network that made them household names. Network president Channing Dungey confirmed the plans for the new episodes while on a conference call with reporters ahead of ABC's big presentation during 2017 Upfronts week in New York City.
"We're rebooting Roseanne," she said. "It is planned for the midseason. We're still at the early stages." Per the network's press release, the eight-episode revival will find the Connors continuing to deal with "the economic challenges of living pay check to pay check in 2018."
