Dan Is Alive, Darlene Is Divorced, and Jackie Is a Nasty Woman in Roseanne Reboot Photos
After a few short trailers, some behind-the-scenes snaps, and a reunion at the Golden Globes, we've finally gotten a big look at the Roseanne reboot's first few episodes. ABC shared a bunch of photos from the new season ahead of its March 27 premiere, and they're full of exciting details about what the beloved old characters — as well as the new cast! — are up to.
Dan (John Goodman) is alive and well despite his character dying in the season finale, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) is in full Nasty Woman mode, and it looks like Darlene (Sara Gilbert) is seeking comfort from her parents after moving back in following her separation from her husband, David (Johnny Galecki). There are also a few shots of the new, younger characters! Shameless star Emma Kenney plays Harris, Darlene's daughter, and Jayden Rey will appear as Mary, D.J.'s daughter. Twenty years later, the Conner family has only grown.
Take a look at all the photos ahead, then check out how much the cast has changed since the show's original run!
Roseanne and Dan cuddle in the same bed they had in the original show.
Darlene looks on as her Aunt Jackie has it out with Roseanne.
The writers dreamed up a clever plan to allow both of the actresses who played Becky — Alicia Goranson and Sarah Chalke — to appear in the reboot. The Scrubs alum (aka Becky #2) will play "a middle-class married woman named Andrea who hires Becky (Goranson) to serve as her surrogate."
Michael Fishman's D.J. holds Mary, while Goodman holds young star Ames McNamara, who plays Darlene's son, Mark.
We can't wait to see where the relationship between Roseanne and Jackie will go.
Don't worry — the family still eats around the same dining room table.
We wonder if those are the same exact sets they used to have . . .
Remember that colorful blanket from the original seasons? Also, check out those cute photos on the table behind them!
Dan and Darlene cheers in the garage, just like old times.
Is Harris getting some discipline from her grandmother, whom the kids will call Granny Rose?
Dan and Roseanne are clearly still an excellent team.
What do you think Aunt Jackie is saying here? Something hilarious, we imagine.
Things don't look peachy keen between Roseanne and Darlene.
Maybe Darlene is teaching her parents how to use Facebook?
This looks like a serious chat between Darlene and her daughter, Harris.
But at least Roseanne isn't afraid to step in and provide some grandmother-ly wisdom?
We'd do the same thing, Dan.
Bringing a sitcom back from the dead is exhausting, you know?
The gang's all here!
