The Roseanne gang is back! ABC just released the opening credits video for the show’s highly-anticipated upcoming reboot and the clip is giving us major nostalgia. Not only is the series’ original theme song back, but former Roseanne stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman have all returned too, making this a TV remake we seriously cannot wait to watch.
Just like the show’s very first credits video, the reboot’s opening begins with a shot of lead character Roseanne Conner (played by Roseanne Barr, of course) sitting at the Conner family’s kitchen table. Seated beside Roseanne is her husband, Dan Conner (John), and sister Jackie Harris (Laurie) while the three Connor kids, Becky (Lecy), Darlene (Sara), and DJ (Michael) buzz around the kitchen. Watch the clip below!
The remake’s opening looks essentially the same with just a few more Conner family members added in as kids Becky, Darlene, and Michael are now all grown up. In the new show, Darlene is a mom to two kids named Harris Conner-Healy and Mark Conner-Healy, and DJ is a dad to Mary Conner. Both videos end with Roseanne’s now-famous (and beloved!) hearty laugh — how perfect is that?!
The new opening credits clip comes just days after the first full-length Roseanne reboot trailer was revealed during the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4. Following the videos’ release, Roseanne fans couldn’t contain their excitement about the popular series returning to ABC 21 years after its finale aired. “SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!” one person commented on the trailer video via Instagram with another similarly adding, “I am incredibly happy! Can’t wait to see it!”
The new Roseanne is set to premiere on ABC on Tuesday, March 27 — we’re so excited Roseanne, John, Laurie, Sara, and the rest of the cast are back on the small screen!
