Roseanne is set to return for an eight-episode limited run, according to reports.
The original show ran for nine seasons with the plot revolving around the Conners – an all-American working-class family living in Illinois.
A reboot is being shopped around to various networks and streaming platforms with original cast members including Roseanne Barr, her on-screen husband John Goodman (Dan) and on-screen daughter Sara Gilbert (Darlene) attached.
Barr – who played the titular character – retweeted several messages from excited fans online including links to articles about the revival.
While she did not directly confirm the news herself, the 64-year-old tweeted: “Excited to create funny TV.”
There is no word as yet on a proposed premiere date, or which actress will play Becky.
Alicia Goranson, who originally took the role of Roseanne’s eldest daughter, quit during the show’s fifth season to attend college. She was replaced by Sarah Chalke, returning during the show’s eighth season, when she and Chalke alternated playing Becky.
