The revival of a beloved 90s sitcom is officially on the road. ABC has released a photo of the table read for the revival premiere episode of Roseanne titled “Twenty Years to Life.” We can see in the photo above that the cast and crew are having fun and laughing. We can’t wait for the Conner family to be back.
Here is the order of the photo above (clockwise from left): John Pasquin (director), Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne Barr, Michael Fishman, Jayden Rey, Bruce Helford (executive producer), Whitney Cummings (executive producer), Sid Youngers (co-executive producer), Sarah Chalke, Lecy Goranson, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Ames Mcnamara, and Tony Hernandez (executive producer). Notably, Johnny Galecki is absent in the photo as they are still in negotiations on working out his involvement (of course, he is busy playing Leonard on The Big Bang Theory).
The eight-episode revival, featuring the original cast – Barr, Goodman, Gilbert, Metcalf, Fishman, and Goranson – will air in early 2018. Chalke, who played Becky in later seasons, will also appear in another role. October 18 is the 29th anniversary of the show’s original premiere on ABC in 1988. Barr is an executive producer, along with Gilbert, Tom Werner, Helford, Cummings, and Hernandez. The series is from Carsey-Werner Television.
