‘Roseanne’ Revival Scores Additional Episode Order at ABC

The revival of “Roseanne” is getting an extra episode order before it even premieres, Variety has confirmed.

Instead of the planned eight episodes, the series will now air for nine episodes this spring. ABC had officially ordered the project to series back in May.

The new series will feature the original cast – Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky). Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in later seasons, will also appear in another role. Johnny Galecki, who played David, currently stars on the CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.”

Tom Werner and Bruce Helford will return as executive producers, with Barr and Gilbert also executive producing. The original series ran for nine seasons on ABC and was widely praised for its portrayal of working class Americans. The series followed the Conner family as they tried to scrape out a living in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois.

Barr was nominated for four Emmys during the shows run, winning one, in addition to five Golden Globe nominations, again winning one. Goodman received seven Emmy nominations for the series, along with four Golden Globe nominations, of which he won one. Gilbert received two Emmy nominations for the series, losing out both times in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category to Metcalf, who won three Emmys for her work on the show.
