SE­CRETS OF THE ROSEANNE RE­BOOT

We can’t wait for the highly an­tic­i­pated re­vival of beloved ’90s sit­com Roseanne next month. The ground­break­ing se­ries, which fol­lowed the story of the Con­ner fam­ily, won four Em­mys over its run from 1988 to 1997. We’ve been let in on a few se­crets from t

1 Fans will be over­joyed to know they can ex­pect lots of fa­mil­iar faces on the cast list, in­clud­ing Lau­rie Met­calf, Roseanne Barr, Sara Gil­bert, Michael Fish­man, Sarah Chalke, John Good­man and Johnny Galecki. 2 The orig­i­nal show’s ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers Roseanne Barr, Tom Werner and Bruce Helford have all re­turned to work on the project, as well as two new­com­ers. 3 Roseanne wants to use this op­por­tu­nity to re­flect the di­vided Trump era. Her char­ac­ter will be an out­spo­ken sup­porter of Trump, while her co-stars’ char­ac­ters will be split be­tween sup­port for the pres­i­dent and op­po­si­tion. 4 One of Roseanne’s grand­chil­dren will be por­trayed as a non-bi­nary child (a per­son who doesn’t iden­tify with be­ing ei­ther fe­male or male). The cast­ing call for Mark asked for ac­tors who can play “sen­si­tive and ef­fem­i­nate”, and a child who “dis­plays qual­i­ties of both young fe­male and male traits”. 5 The show will hon­our the late Ir­ish-born ac­tor Glenn Quinn, who played Mark (Becky’s boyfriend-turned-hus­band).

ROSEANNE re­turns March 27, 8pm, ABC (US)
