The comedy will return for Season 11.
March 30, 2018
ABC announced today that its revival of Roseanne has been renewed for another season, which will be the show's 11th overall. The news comes as no surprise after the comedy's well-received return to television earlier this week.
In its first two episodes back, which aired in a one-hour block on Tuesday night, Roseanne surpassed all expectations by drawing a massive audience of 18 million viewers with an impressive 5.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Those numbers are almost unheard of nowadays, especially for broadcast comedies.
Being that the show was one of the network's most popular sitcoms of the 1990s, it makes sense that its return with the entire original main cast would draw a lot of interest. While it is yet to be seen how much momentum from its premiere it can retain, the revival's strong start was enough to earn it at least another season.

REALLY, “Is My Show Canceled”?? Even this platform is allowing childish name calling? Why would you allow comments from Aethn & “Big Erns” on here when they are derogatory towards other contributors and just down right RUDE & uncalled for?! Not to mention the person who called themselves “Sweet” and flipped the bird to everyone

I think the show is perfect for the social climate we’re in. The show deals with REAL family issues & it’s incredibly relatable. There isn’t anything like this on TV & it’s massive audience only proves that people want it. I hope it’s popularity sparks more shows that have a cast & setting that reflects a realistic setting.. ya know.. a house that matches the income of the jobs everybody has lol!!
Anybody tuning into a comedy series reboot expecting intricate plot design & stunning character arcs should maybe be a little more in tune to their own viewing taste, I mean really..:-| ? As far as the show itself I think the first 3 episodes we’re pretty damn good & didn’t waste any time diving into the issues that affect Americans today. I didn’t think any of the political aspects of the show we’re forced or written in a way that would sway it’s audience to change their ideas. In fact the show was able to get us to see how incredibly ridiculous it looks to see family fracturing their tight relationships over an election. The show hits the topic marks very well.. thought provoking but in a light way that can be enjoyed. Rosanne & Dan carry the show.. Jackie is exactly the same & it works.. the character of Becky is also great, the actress nails her role & has great comedic timing & tone. The only thing that feels off (which I hope molds into place) is the character of Darlene played by Sara G & her oldest daughter (Shamless alum). Sara’s lines seem forced & uncomfortable.. she’s almost over thinking her acting it seems. The character of her oldest daughter doesn’t seem natural either but it’s not the actress.. I think it’s still Darlene creating that awkward on screen vibe that Sara is giving.. (I really like Sara Gilbert as a person, so I’m not all that thrilled about my true opinion :/). Her youngest son that could possibly be someone who transitions later on in life is good.. it’s the one plot that I think gives the show it’s progressive edge that it captured when I was young watching it with my parents. It forces families to face subjects they might be ignoring or handling with negativity.
All in all I think Rosanne is one of the reboots that really works. It hits the mark & it feels like your back with The Connor Family. I am really looking forward to the rest of the show & how they tackle the topics they planned.. I also think that we will most likely see Sara work into a more effortless Darlene. Anybody who loved watching it back then will appreciate it without trying so hard (eeek sorry 50% of The X-Files, your still my boo though) & it still has the right formula to snag newer audiences.

The show is funny and it's about working class people. Which is good too. SO lets hope it stays around for another long run.

Rob Reiner (not Carl) is Meathead. (One glaring mistake isn’t too bad?)

Roseanne was the original “show about nothing.” (Well, I’m certain there must be others.) One thing that made it different was rhat it was slow moving compared to other situational comedies. That made it weird to me at the time, and since I didn’t think it was funny, its success was a mystery to me (as so many are). I always thought Roseanne could be a very good standup comedian, so it wasn’t that I did not think she could be very funny. I never understood why John Goodman stuck around because he had great personal success. When I heard Roseanne was coming back, my initial reaction was negative of course. Many shows that try to make comebacks (Leave it to Beaver?) never fully succeed - perhaps they’re too much about re-creation rather than continuation. Now I confess I haven’t yet seen the new Rosanne until I see it by accident - same as for the old one. Still, it seems like a good idea since the main characters are in form and with a plan. The slowness that I thought was weird the first time around is now more my preference since most sitcoms are laden with rapid-fire forced jokes. The clips I’ve seen of the new Rosanne don’t have subtlety so I can’t tell if that’s changed. I don’t know if the political discussions in it are worthy (funny) or not. But I just saw Carl Reiner on TV railing against Rosanne because he thinks it is propoganda for Trump. I pretty much doubt that, but I don’t doubt that Meathead is a public idiot. How much TV has a liberal bend versus conservative - and you are complaining about the danger? If you get the answer very wrong, it means you are horribly blind to your own distorted biases. For all I know, Goodman and Rosanne are not conservative. I’m sure Rosanne isn’t. (We’ll see how this comes out since I didn’t re-read any of it, even once.)

To Debbie downer & the rest of the libtards, people are sick of politics on tv because its always 1 sided. The very second a show in Hollywood tries to tell both sides of the story you soyboys & feminazis get triggered!
Its ACTUAL hypocrisy to stay silent when Hollywood tells only 1 side of politics & then complain about people who enjoy a show trying to be balanced. ACTUAL Nazis silenced the opposition because they had a bad argument, sound familiar?

Yea, I gotta agree with Debbie on this one. I've got a quite diverse group of friends politically and they did in fact rip Will and Grace apart because of politics but are totally praising this one for virtually the same reason. Well, at least those who didn't balk at the idea of the gender fluid character anyway.
Anyway, I'm hoping the political element doesn't become the basis of the show. Politics is everywhere but I'd like to watch sitcoms to escape all that.
