Roseanne revival: What have the cast been doing for the last 20 years?
They were one of America’s favourite families in the late 1980s and ’90s – with their affectionate bickering, everyday crises, growing pains and belly laughs beamed into more than 20 million homes in the US.
Now the Conners are coming back, more than 20 years after the last episode of Roseanne was aired.
All the original cast are returning – after getting up to some successful and surprising stuff in the intervening two decades.
In another reality, instead of President Trump, we might now be talking about President Barr.
In 2012, the real Roseanne ran for president. She didn’t get very near the White House, though – she failed to gain the presidential nomination for the Green Party and ended up running for the Peace and Freedom Party, gaining 67,000 votes.
As well as that, she’s had her own talk show, done stand-up comedy, judged Last Comic Standing, hosted Momsters: When Moms Go Bad and starred in the reality show Roseanne’s Nuts, about her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.
And in 2015, she revealed she has macular degeneration and glaucoma, saying at the time her vision was “closing in now”.
