John Goodman recently visited his former TV Daughter Sara Gilbert on The Talk in an interview-style reunion of sorts. Afterwards interest of a full cast Roseanne reunion began to gather traction. Roseanne Barr herself even weighed in via her Twitter by saying that the cast is up for a reunion. We may soon see The Connor Family reunite onscreen again and return to Lanford, IL.

Comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Norm MacDonald even has an idea of where the Connor’s would be today. He would be one to know, he was a writer and story editor on the show from 1992-1993.
I would like to write this show. I know what the Connors are up to. Write it like a play, like no other reunion show ever done. Let’s do it. https://t.co/RUZvJDmzb6

Roseanne was a groundbreaking TV sitcom that aired for nine seasons on ABC from October 18, 1988, to May 20, 1997. Its realistic portrayal of the average American family is what set it apart from other sitcoms at the time and made it so endearing. The series starred Roseanne Barr as the titular character and matriarch of the Conners, an Illinois working-class family that the show centered around. The show dealt with real issues like trying to make ends meet albeit sometimes in a comical way.
No word on if or when a reunion will take place. There is also no word on whether this reunion would be a one off or new season akin to Full House a show that started in 1987 on ABC, and has seen resurgence with Fuller House a sequel series on Netflix. Netflix may be the home for this show.
