Roseanne, Darlene, Jackie, Becky (No. 1 and No. 2), D.J. and even Dan (yes, somehow Dan has risen from the dead) are all back for Roseanne, 20 years after the show ended. The eight-episode revival was officially announced by ABC in May and kicked off production in earnest in October.

To mark the occasion, ABC released a photo of the cast and crew assembled for the first table read and now thanks to executive producers like Roseanne Barr and Whitney Cummings, we have an even more in depth look at the revival. In addition to Barr, the returning cast includes Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson, Sarah Chalke and John Goodman.

Take a look at the behind the scenes action now.

Viewers will recall the series ended with the reveal the series was in fact a story fabricated by Roseanne Conner. Dan (Goodman) didn't have an affair, he died. Jackie (Metcalf) was a lesbian, her daughters were with the opposite brothers, and more changes. It has yet to be revealed how the revival deals with that. The Will & Grace revival faced a similar problem and handled several later season developments by having Karen (Megan Mullally) dream them up.

Roseanne returns in 2018.
