But the show will return for real after ABC’s decision to greenlight an eight-episode revival. Every member of the Conner family will be back, including both of the actresses who played Becky (Sarah Chalke will assume a different character).

The show’s belated tenth season will air on ABC in the spring of 2018 as a mid-season replacement. But, of course, Roseanne wouldn’t be Roseanne without some controversy. And one particular new addition to the cast has already got one notorious group of people in boycott mode before they’ve watched a single episode.
