Jerry Garcia Isn’t In The Roseanne Reboot – But Here’s What Happened To The Conners’ Youngest Son

Reviving Roseanne was a surprisingly complicated affair. After all, one main character was supposed to be dead; another of the sitcom’s actors had sadly passed away since the series’ end. Furthermore, most of what had happened in the show’s last season was supposed to be a fiction-within-a-fiction, meaning the revival would likely have to forget that that whole run had ever happened.

Fans were reassured, though, as more news started filtering out about the new shows; all the old characters seemed to be coming back, at least. But there was one notable person missing from the proposed cast lineup: Roseanne’s son Jerry Garcia, who would have grown into an adult in the decades that the show was off the air.

Back in the ’90s, though, Roseanne was big. Its portrayal of a working-class family had an authentic feel, and the lovable Conner family had always entertained audiences with their plain-speaking attitudes and romantic entanglements. The sitcom was a hit with the public to boot; from 1989 to 1990, the show was the most watched in the whole of America.
