Great news for local John Goodman! Roseanne is coming back as a TV show...just without Roseanne. All the other cast will still be there and reportedly many yet-to-be-announced guest stars. ABC has ordered 10 episodes of the new version of the show that is said to just be called The Connors.

No details on how they'll explain the absence of Roseanne, but the storyline will follow the rest of the family after a "sudden turn of events." --- Any guesses what that sudden turn might include?  

Roseanne said she agreed to the terms of the show's reboot because of all the jobs, specifically of the crew, that will come along with the show. She will not get any money from the show nor will she have any creative control.
