Connor Clan is returning home

It has been two decades since the iconic sitcom signed off the air. As ABC officially announced the revival of the series, viewers would be glad knowing that the Connor clan is returning home which once created household names.

The eight-episode revival will center on Connor's deal with the different economic challenges while living from paycheck to paycheck in 2018.

After the revival news has been confirmed, "Roseanne" sparks the news among other TV networks. Dungey also added in one of his statements that Connor's joys and struggles in the sitcom series are as relevant and hilarious today than it was before. Further, the reboot will also address one question, whether or not, Dan is still alive.

During the series finale in 1997, it was revealed that Dan suffered a heart attack and he was fatal at the end of the season 8. On the upcoming reboot, the reason of his death will be given answers.

It was also in late April when Barr took a post on Twitter and she shared that she is willing to do a reboot for the sitcom series. She believes that it is a way to cite the country's new political reality today. Fortunately, the revival has been confirmed and is returning on TV soon.
