With the Will & Grace revival on the board, fans of some classic television shows are on alert to see what shows are being considered to the revival treatment. Fuller House is doing well on Netflix, but it looks like another classic series is heading back to the small screen with new episodes.
Deadline is reporting that the 1990 ABC series Roseanne is officially getting a revival. According to Deadline, the series is bringing back Rosanne Barry, John Goodman & Sara Gilbert, with Laurie Metcalf & other original cast members in the process of joining them.
As of right now, the series does not have a home, but ABC, Netflix & other networks are currently in a bidding war over the series.
Roseanne is an American sitcom that was broadcast on ABC from October 18, 1988, to May 20, 1997. Lauded for its realistic portrayal of the average American family, the series stars Roseanne Barr, and revolves around the Conners, an Illinois working-class family. The series reached #1 in the Nielsen ratings, becoming the most watched television show in the United States from 1989 to 1990. The show remained in the top four for six of its nine seasons, and in the top twenty for eight seasons.
