This makes me very happy - I think Michael Fishman will be an asset to the new series. Plus, will we see little Jerry and little Andy grown up? Perhaps there is a family situation that pulls them all together...

What they really need is something missing from TV today (and for most of the show's last year); the real, middle class America feel. The first few years of this show captured that so well; I feel like that is its biggest strength.

Get George Clooney back as Booker, and I'm in.

Roseanne was one of my favorite shows on TV for about the first 6 years and then it just got so far out there. The last season was awful. I had stopped watching it regularly the season before but I would catch episodes once in awhile. And of course I tuned in for the last episode. It was awful.

That might not be so bad. I can't believe they thought that was a good way to end the series. Newhart it was not.

I just don't understand why now?? Will it be like the 1st seasons with Rosanne working in the plastics factory?? How are they going to explain where Mark and David are?? I for one is not going to like this. I may watch an episode but not give it my full attention.

I'm excited about it and it will probably be where the show left off. I herd John Goodman is coming back, but how since his character died on the show. Maybe it will be some kind of dream.

I too wonder how they are going to handle Dan. Please for the love of god, don't be another dream.

My guess is that Jerry will come out in the new series. Roseanne wanted DJ to come out in the original, but Fishman didn't want to do it, so she backed off. But I bet she'll do it this time.

we can all relate to the show in season 1-4 when she was working a min wage job, 3 young kids, no politics, no news, house a mess but they don't keep it clean, single sister comes to visit

That to me, is the best relate-able, funny, everyday life.

I'm excited to see this happen but I also wonder if it will. 2018 is still quite a bit away and with how erratic and crazy Roseanne is currently (just take a glance at her Twitter feed), I question whether creative differences won't come into play.

A few years ago, NBC announced a revival of Coach. It never happened. Much of it was creative differences with the network.

I feel we're set for something similar. We'll see, tho. I won't expect much until there's actually a set and they're filming.

With that said, years ago I came up with an idea of a reunion of sorts. I posted it here back then but I'll share it now:

Quote:
Jerry is graduating from high school and the entire Conner clan returns to Lanford to celebrate.

Roseanne & Dan still live on Delaware Street, so we find out they're not wealthy and still struggle getting by. Roseanne continues to work at the Lunchbox, while Dan is now the shop teacher and football coach at Lanford High.

Darlene eventually went to the University of Illinois and graduated with a degree in teaching. She's now a creative writing teacher at a Chicago public school.

David spent a few years as a stay at home dad, raising Harris Conner Healy and another child, Daniel David Healy. Eventually, when Daniel David starts attending elementary school, David gets a job working as a cartoonist for the local alternative paper. He eventually becomes the main political cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune.

Becky and Mark moved to Indiana, where Becky became a nurse and Mark runs his own auto repair shop. Since Glenn Quinn has since passed, in the reunion, Mark is stuck working during the graduation and can't make it to Lanford with Becky.

The two have a daughter, Mary Healy, who is now just starting high school.

David James is a film school flunky who still lives in Lanford and works at the local movie rental place. He lives on his own, though isn't afraid to eat his parents' food or crash at their pad for long periods of time.

He's currently in an on again, off again relationship.

Jackie spent the first few years of Andy's life as a single mother. However, one night, while shopping at Buy 'n Bag, she runs into Gary. They start talking, catching up and she finds out, shortly after they broke up, that he married and moved to Iowa. However, the marriage didn't work and he had just recently relocated back to Lanford.

He asks Jackie out and, without thought, agrees. The two start dating, and a year later, he proposes. Jackie says yes and the two marry and have a daughter, who Jackie names Beverly, after her mother who had passed shortly before the birth of the daughter.

Jackie and Roseanne still work together at the Lunchbox and remain as close as ever.

So, that's the backstory. Everyone returns for the graduation, heads butt, fights break out, but in the end, they preserver.

The final shot is at Jerry's graduation, the entire family standing with each other - Dan, Roseanne, Jackie, Gary and all the kids - smiling with Jerry in his cap and gown smack dab in the middle.
I guess something like this could fit into an 8 episode story arch (though, now Jerry is graduating from college - not high school...since I wrote that in 2011).

I don't know about Roseanne's book but the last time we saw Jerry, he was maybe 1 years old; its been off for 10 years so I think he'd be 9 or 10 years old (???)
