The Conner family is back! The Roseanne revival is officially in production — and the first photo of the cast has been released.
In a new pic, the stars are cracking up during a table read on set, including Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackei), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky). (Yes, Dan Conner is alive even though the beloved character died in the series finale.)
The costars are also joined by director John Pasquin and new executive producer Whitney Cummings, among others.
Someone who appeared not to be there, however? The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki, who played Darlene’s boyfriend David. In August, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that talks to bring back the actor are “ongoing.”
As previously reported, it was officially announced in May that the show would be returning to ABC. “It is planned for the mid-season. We’re still at the early stages,” Dungey said at an Upfronts event at the time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, eight episodes are in the works.
Roseanne ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997.
