Roseanne Barr Reveals Why a 'Roseanne' Revival Didn't Happen Sooner

Metcalf hasn't changed a bit in the intervening years (she can tap into the overdramatic Jackie in a second) but Barr isn't quite the same Roseanne. Metcalf took home a trophy on her first try in 1992 (followed by two more), but Barr would need to wait an extra year until 1993 to triumph.

"For some reason I thought I read something years ago that Roseanne said she didn't want to touch the original so I had assumed for all these years there was no way to do it", Gilbert said. With a big smile she proclaims, "I was just overwhelmed".

After hesitating, Barr responded, "Yeah, I was".

Not only does Dan make a return, but both Goranson and Chalke, who played Becky Conner, will appear on the show at once. "I know it's hard to believe. but with that come a little mellowness and we don't have to raise the kids anymore and we've got the grandchildren to spoil now", he added.

The cast also shed light on the political side of the show Barr has previously mentioned that will reflect "real working class people". "And if we forget that, I think it's not good for us". 'A lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don't want to see our president fail'.

And she's back with quite a resume in hand. He's talking about a movie, but the statement works for "Roseanne", too. I keep my yap shut.

"You want Pence? You want Pence for the freakin' president?" "It has so many more layers now because of the true history".

In the final moments, after Roseanne reflected on the book, she series closed with her going back upstairs and sitting on the family couch, with her trademark laugh heard one last time as the show faded to black.

"Roseanne" returns March 27 at 8 p.m. on ABC50.
