View Full Version : Rosesanne Making A Comeback

04-28-2017, 02:19 PM

An eight episode revival season in the pipeline, most of the cast coming back too.

I was wondering how that'd work, and Barr had apparently written an essay on where she'd place the characters now

If you recall in 2009, Roseanne published a short tidbit on her website about “where the characters from the series would be today”, including things like Roseanne and Jackie opening the first medical marijuana dispensary in Lanford; Dan reappearing alive after faking his death; DJ being published; Mark dying in Iraq; David leaving Darlene for a woman half his age; Darlene coming out, meeting a woman and having a baby with her; Becky working at Walmart; Arnie befriending the Governor of Illinois and remarrying Nancy, Bev selling a painting for $10,000; Jerry and the grandsons forming a boy band; and Bonnie being arrested for selling crack.

If this means I'll be able to stream the original series on Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu? Sign me up.

Not only was that show some of the most biting social commentary about the lower-middle class on tv a the time, but it also gave me my weekly Sara Gilbert fix.

So.... will this take place in the old folks home and each episode will deal with Darlene making sure Rosie takes all her pills?

All these show revivals for nostalgia sake and pandering are.......awesome. I can't help but like them. I watched hours of Roseanne in late night marathons from say 11pm to 3 am while I was on the internet when I was younger. Lots of nostalgia.

I wonder how they'll fix that god awful finale.

Well the former is a motion picture actor, while the latter is a headliner on a broadcast tv show.

Seeing how old she looked back when she was first announced to play Kraang Prime a few years back, I'm surprised she can still do a show. 8 episodes or not.

I hated Becky. At least when the first actress played her. Its some what funny that she threw her life away and then was shocked when her life turned out like crap.
