According to a report from Deadline, the ABC order for a new season consists of 13 episodes. Watching Roseanne in 2018 has the same comedic beats and timing as it did decades ago, and getting to see John Goodman bringing the laughs once again is certainly going to be a treat going forward.
"Roseanne Barr is a Trump supporter who seems to already be taking a page from the president's playbook and causing controversy on Twitter", CNN national reporter Brynn Bingras reported. "We can't wait to see what the "Roseanne" team has in store for next year", said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey. Liberals have an army of actors, musicians, athletes and reality stars who are public and vocal about their politics, while conservatives do not have as many celebrity supporters. With the inimitable Roseanne at its epicenter, fresh stories that tackle today's issues and even more laughs from a brilliant cast and crew that haven't missed a beat, audiences old and new will celebrate the homecoming of America's favorite working-class family.
The show had a built-in fan base from its previous incarnation on ABC.

Barr on Twitter last November asked users to put her in contact with QAnon, and her account was suspended for several hours and website went offline, with conspiracy theorists claiming that she had been silenced by deep state actors determined to supress QAnon's secrets. Trump made a personal phone call to Barr and boasted about her ratings at his rally in Ohio Thursday.
"He talked about jobs, Jackie", Roseanne said.
"The "Roseanne" narrative has gotten out of control", former Amazon Studios executive Matthew Ball tweeted.
The popularity of the revival is happening in movies, too.
James says he was open to letting the show use the couch, but anxious it would get damaged, so he had strict stipulations on its use.
