It’s almost here!
The minute-long trailer was quintessential Roseanne, with snarky quips, bold humor and the beloved Conner crew. Naturally, the cast poked fun at the original series’ controversial finale —in which Dan (John Goodman) was killed off by a heart attack.
“I thought you were dead!” Roseanne says in the exclusive clip as she lays in bed next to Dan.
“Why does everybody always think I’m dead?!” Dan replies.
“We were a family for nine seasons and I had a feeling that as soon as we stepped back onto the stage again it would just reappear and it did,” she said. “I knew that the fans would be really curious to see this family that they knew and see what they’re up to again. Why not revisit these people who were so funny and close and had such a crazy dynamic between them?”
ABC is planning a special hour-long premiere for Roseanne at 8 p.m. ET on March 27. The sitcom will settle into its regular time slot of 8 p.m. ET on April 3.
The 2018 Oscars were held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4 and were telecast live on ABC.
