Dan Lives in First Official Photo From ABC’s ‘Roseanne’ Revival
And just like that – Roseanne Season 9 never happened. Our first formal look at the 2018 revival sees not only John Goodman back in his role as Dan Conner, but also Roseanne herself and daughter Darlene palling around the old house like nothing’s changed.
Entertainment Weekly shared the first official photo (as opposed to a table read) from next year’s Roseanne revival, which itself has yet to set an official 2018 premiere date. In it, we see for certain that the infamous “Dan was actually dead in Season 9” twist has been thoroughly overwritten, as Roseanne, Darlene and Dan are all reunited in the classic house.
The 2018 series will reunite original stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Johnny Galecki, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson. Sarah Chalke will also return in a new role, joining newcomers Ames McNamara (Darlene and David’s son, Mark), Shameless star Emma Kenney (Darlene and David’s daughter, Harris), Jayden Rey, director John Pasquin, producers Bruce Helford, Whitney Cummings and Tony Hernandez, and co-executive producer Sid Youngers.
We’ll likely have an official premiere date for 2018 return “Twenty Years to Life” before long, so stay tuned for the latest on Roseanne’s return next year.
