The cast of Roseanne will return to televisions this fall — without Roseanne Barr — in The Conners. The spinoff, which features the remaining members of the iconic sitcom family, will officially premiere on Tuesday, October 16 — almost a month after ABC debuts its other fall programming. In addition to The Conners, the network has set fall premiere dates for several other new and returning shows, including The Good Doctor and Grey’s Anatomy.
One wouldn’t necessarily expect the Conner family to take stock of the Oscars, but Roseanne is officially going for gold. The 90th Academy Awards brought our first look at ABC’s upcoming Roseanne revival, and John Goodman’s miraculous return has not gone unnoticed.
Like Will & Grace (and perhaps now Mad About You), sitcom revivals have a habit of ignoring their own series finales. That’s certainly the case with John Goodman’s Roseanne return, and the first official promos for our 2018 revival are not afraid to poke fun.
The Conners are back, and they look like they haven’t missed a step. Catch a first look at ABC’s upcoming Roseanne revival, as a new table read photo reveals both the updated Conner household, and familiar faces like John Goodman and Sarah Chalke.
We’re starting to a see a bizarre revival trend in which shows like Will & Grace completely ignore their finales in favor of a comeback. So too is Roseanne confirmed to ignore its meta-twist ending, because what’s Roseanne without John Goodman’s Dan?
Surprised though we were that Roseanne was next on the list for revival, we knew ABC would put up a fight to host it. So it is, that the broadcast network has beaten out Netflix for the chance to bring back Roseanne, currently eying the return for midseason.
With the recent announcement that Transformers: The Last Knight would be hitting theaters two days earlier — moving from Friday, June 23 to Wednesday, June 21 — fans are closer than ever to seeing their favorite Autobots (and humans) throw down against a reluctantly evil Optimus Prime. This is the summer of heel turns by beloved franchise characters; first we saw Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto betray his family in The Fate of the Furious, and now we’re counting down the days until Optimus Prime stabs Bumblebee in the face. Rough summer for heroes, it would seem.
‘10 Cloverfield Lane’ is as sneaky as movies come. No one had any idea the ‘Cloverfield’ universe was being continued until a trailer for the mysterious movie appeared in front of Michael Bay’s ‘13 Hours’ on January 14, a mere two months before its release this Friday. Only scant details about the movie have been revealed in trailers, photos and through fans decoding its vast viral marketing, reminiscent to the unveiling of ‘Cloverfield’ nine years ago. But now that we’ve finally seen the new movie, we can tell you just how it is, and mostly isn’t, related to Matt Reeves’ 2008 monster movie. If you want to remain completely surprised, check out our spoiler-free review. Otherwise, continue into very spoilery territory where we will ruin some big plot twists. You’ve been warned!
