Transcript for 'Roseanne' cast reuniting for ABC reboot
Finally tonight, for years the Connor family took us into their living room. But today they brought their living room to us. It's official, America's favorite blue collar sweetheart is back. Care for a drink? Just water. We got water, I don't know if it's got minerals in it. Reporter: ABC announcing today "Roseanne" is set to return 20 years after the final episode. What else is new? Shut up. This is why some animals eat their young. Reporter: The show known for Roseanne's signature laugh and brand of sarcastic working-class humor captured the hearts of millions over the course of nearly a decade. ABC entertainment president Channing dungy announcing weeding seeing familiar faces. I'm thrilled to announce all the original cast are returning as are many of the original writers and directors. Reporter: Wheeled out like royalty on the same old couch. I'd like to be humble for a moment -- Reporter: You'd think nothing had changed. The duo seems to be looking forward to the reunion. The most fun part of it was how much the cast and writers and crew loved each other. So I so look forward to that again. Yeah, I look forward to the family atmosphere that we had. That bickering. Crazed family atmosphere. Reporter: ABC pointing out how there's really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne. Still no word how good man's character will make a return. It was revealed in the finale that the prior season was a dream and he had died of a heart attack. This is going to be fun! Reporter: Either way the Connors will return in 2018 for an eight-episode reboot. Thank you for watching ABC news.
