'Roseanne' is the latest 90s sitcom scheduled to make a comeback


Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert are returning to the small screen for a revival of hit sitcom "Roseanne."

Barr and Gilbert will executive produce the project alongside Tom Werner, Bruce Helford and Whitney Cummings.

The report started a Twitter moment with people sharing their excitement over the Roseanne reboot.

Deadline first reported that the '90s sitcom could be making its return to the air with eight new episodes. Some of the show's original cast and crew will return with its revival.

"Roseanne" centered on a working-class family living in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois. It ran for nine seasons in the U.S. and also starred Laurie Metcalf and "The Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki.

The original cast members received several Emmy Awards and Golden Globes nominations and wins throughout the show's run.

It is unclear when the eight-episode series will go into production, but it is currently being shopped to several networks and streaming service Netflix. It is also not known how Goodman's character will be incorporated in the new show since he died at the end of the original series finale in 1997.
