Did you really think this week was going to end without yet another reboot announcement? According to Deadline, a Roseanne revival is in the works and original cast members Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert are already confirmed to reprise their roles.

The comeback will be a limited eight-episode series and different broadcast networks and streaming services are placing their bids on picking it up.

The sitcom also starred Laurie Metcalf (who is also in talks to return for the reboot) as Jackie Harris, Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner. It went on to win four Emmys and three Golden Globes.
