In the first live-action look at the upcoming “Roseanne” revival on ABC, the show pokes fun at its own plot holes, while the Conner family back together in the famous living room.
In the first set of promo videos to tease the upcoming show, which premieres on March 27, Roseanne, Dan, Becky, and Darlene gather around the TV to nod to the striking fact that simply shouldn’t be there.
“You can’t live in the past! When things are gone, they are gone forever!” is the title character says to her on-screen husband notes that the Bulls of 1996-1997 would beat the current line-up.
While the joke meaning in its own context, it has a bit of a triple meaning. It is not only a comment on “Roseanne”, and return after the end of in 1997, but these tips a hat to the fact that the father character was revealed to have died in the last episode. It has already been confirmed that John Goodman will reprise his role, but the cast and the crew remained strangely tight-lipped about how the revival will address Dan’s existence.
“I don’t want to talk too specific, but I would not say that we ignore the events of the finale,” ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey told Vulture. “It is definitely still alive.”
Dan’s passing is not the only meta obstacle the show will go to the safe deposit box before you get in the typical Conner family hijinx. The Fans were surprised to learn that both Alicia Goranson and Sarah Chalke would return as Becky. Goranson left the show before the run ended, leaving the series to recast the Becky character with Chalke.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will use both of the actresses by making Chalke a new character. Andrea is a middle-class married woman who hires Becky (played by Goranson) to be her surrogate.
