ABC ordered Season 10, the show MUST go on!
The Conner family is from Illinois. They are a zany working class family. Roseanne Barr is the matriarch who goes by Rosie. And her husband Dan, who is played by John Goodman.
Rosie’s sister Jackie, played by Laurie Metcalf has since retired from the Police force and still drops in at Rosie and Dan’s place. With no children of her own, she is VERY involved with Rosie’s kiddos. Although they are no longer “kiddos” twenty years later. But, Aunt Jackie is still a busy body.
In real life, Laurie played Sheldon’s mother on The Big Bang Theory, which happens to be the second biggest viewed premiere next to Roseanne’s reboot. (Teaser video below)
Watch the teaser of tonight’s episode. “Roseanne Gets The Chair.”
Becky, who is played by Lecy Goranson is back and in her 40’s. She keeps popping in at the Connor’s because she is considering being a surrogate mother.
Darlene, the middle child is played by Sara Gilbert, who came back home with her two children. Darlene’s oldest child, Harris, is played by Emma Kenney. And, her youngest son, who is a cross dresser at age 9, is played by Ames McNamara.
Darlene’s boyfriend, Johnny Galecki, from twenty years ago made it big on the The Big Bang Theory as Leonard Hofstadter. And, it would be great to see him make an appearance on the reboot of Roseanne. Maybe he will since he is on the credit according to TV Promo.
Rosie and Dan’s youngest son, DJ, is back on the show and boy has he grown up. He just returned from the military, and his wife is stationed away. Their young daughter, played by Jayden Rey lives in the Connor home too.
President Trump congratulates Roseanne on a phone call!
“It was pretty exciting, I’ll tell you that much,” Barr said during a phone call with “Good Morning America.” “They said, ‘Hold please for the president of the United States of America’ and (that) was about the most exciting thing ever. It was just very sweet of him to congratulate us.
“I’ve known him for many years and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years,” she continued. “It was just a friendly conversation about working and television and ratings. He really understands ratings and how they measure things.”
“Roseanne” made headlines last year when Barr, who has been outspoken about her support for President Trump, announced that her character would also be a Trump supporter.
The second season of “Roseanne” is slated to have 13 episodes. Specifically, the next episode of season one will air Tuesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central.
