New Episodes of Roseanne Coming to ABC Network

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

I think it’s safe to say the sitcom Roseanne was an influential part of many people’s lives. Whether you could relate to the marriage of Dan and Roseanne, Darlene’s hilariously sarcastic comments, the dynamic between Roseanne and Jackie and their mother, or something entirely different, I think we all have some sort of lasting impression.

At first, I thought, ‘Oh, please don’t bring it back.  Don’t ruin a good thing.’  But as time went on, I actually became excited about the upcoming episodes.  I’m also a huge fan of comedian Whitney Cummings, one of the executive producers of the Roseanne revival. It probably helped after hearing her talk about the table reads on her Instagram channel.
