It’s a Roseanne-athon tonight on ABC with four back-to-back episodes from season 10 with the next new episode airing May 1.
The next new Roseanne season 10 episode, “No Country for Old Women,” airs May 1, following the somber “Darlene v. David” which saw the couple seemingly break up for good. Last week’s episode saw series favorites David Healy (Johnny Galecki) and Bev (Estelle Parsons) return to reprise their iconic roles. David’s brother Mark’s passing (Glenn Quinn) was again referenced, with David explaining he ran from Darlene and their kids because he didn’t know how to deal with his brother passing.
It’s a great time for fans of the legendary series to catch up on season 10 if they missed an episode or even the whole series’ return. Four back-to-back episodes will air tonight starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. You can catch the marathon live from the comfort of your laptop at ABC’s live stream.
According to Deadline, Roseanne has already been renewed for an upcoming season 11. Needless to say, ABC is more than happy with series ratings for the show’s return to the air. Next season will see thirteen episodes, a bump from the nine episodes ordered in the current season 10.
Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment on Roseanne’s return:
"“We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes. The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can’t wait to see what the ‘Roseanne’ team has in store for next year.”"
The sky’s the limit for the series and clearly Roseanne had great relations with practically the entire original cast, as they’ve all returned to reprise their roles. It says a lot about an individual when all former cast members immediately wanted to rejoin and recreate what once was. It means Roseanne’s social abilities in real life transcend the TV screen. She brought the loved series back in spectacular fashion, modernizing it for today’s audience. Truly timeless.
