Playing 'Roseanne' Cast Reunites at ABC Upfronts -- See Them All Together Again!

The cast of Roseanne is together again -- well, almost.

Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) reunited at the ABC Upfront presentation in New York City on Tuesday, hours after the network announced their plans for an eight-episode reboot in 2018.

"I'm happy to be here. We did this show for years and we thought we were done talking, but we found out we've got a whole lot more to say," she shared. "This is going to be fun!"

"There's no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne," ABC continued, confirming that "the most culturally relevant comedy" will return to ABC in 2018 with all the original cast members -- including Sara Gilbert (Darlene), who was missing from Tuesday's festivities as she co-hosted The Talk in Los Angeles. 

Sarah Chalke -- who played Becky in later seasons of the comedy's ABC run -- will also be returning for the reboot, though she'll be playing another character. Roseanne ran for nine seasons on the network from 1988 to 1997, and was America's most-watched show from 1989 to 1990.
