A second season of the revival, number 11 in the general standings, follows record-breaking ratings and a warm reception from critics.
ABC will make more nostalgia from the surprisingly fruitful Roseanne reboot, giving the revived sitcom a not-so-surprising renewal.
The next episode episode will reunite with original Castmembers Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Alicia Goranson and Michael Fishman. It is expected that other former castmembers, as during the last run, will make fewer visits. There was no immediate word as to whether the network plans to have it ready for the case, but sources say the order has increased from nine to 13 episodes.
The wild success of Roseanne can not be stressed enough. In a climate where TV meetings, especially on the sitcom front, are a popular way to cut through the mess, Roseanne did a better job. Its March 27 debut was the season's highest-rated script episode and the highest-rated sitcom in more than three years. The one-hour opener reached a rating of 5.1
At these numbers, the advertising rates should climb for the upcoming return. These episodes have already posted strong $ 175,000 for 30-second spots and the unexpectedly strong ratings will add to that number

The annual Oscars, the night of the ABC calendar, was at a record low. And although the revived American Idol was a consistent performer, he is not set on fire. But now the net will end the broadcast season with the new drama of television number 1, which was previously renewed The Good Doctor and its number 1 series overall in Roseanne [19659005"We"I'mthrilledthatAmericahasbroughttheConnerfamilybackintotheirhomes"saidABCEntertainmentPresidentChanningDungey"Theshowisasfreshanduptodateasitwas21yearsagoWecannotwaittoseewhatthe"Roseanne"teamhasinstorefornextyear
Both cast and showrunner Bruce Helford premiered saying they were hoping for a second season of the revival, "I do not know we'd ever get into a 22-page season," Helford said THR and emphasized that a traditional broadcasting time is unlikely. "That's a lot. John and Laurie have film careers. Everyone has things that they do, so it may be difficult to get 22 episodes. But I would love to do it again 10 or 12 times a year. "
