At the 2018 Winter TCA press tour on January 8, television critics asked about the "younger generation" on Roseanne, including Jerry Garcia and Jackie's son, Andy, who was born toward the end of season six and appeared sporadically throughout the show's final few seasons.

"A lot of the reason that I [had Dan die] was to add another layer of freshness for people who were going to watch the series over and over".

That said, Barr did show some real insight when she predicted the show's relevance in the age of Trump, saying, "As soon as I saw the election results, I knew we'd be back". There is this idea that working class people are too stupid to see when people are trying to trick them and Roseanne always spat on the classism. "And, in fact, it was the working-class people [who] elected Trump ... so I felt that was something that needed to be discussed".

The atmosphere in Pasadena's Langham Huntington hotel was testy at times, with one journalist asking how a character who had shown herself to be anti-racist could realistically be written now as supporting a bigot. When asked if she would support Oprah or Susan Sarandon for president she said, "I think I would be a better president than both Oprah and Susan Sarandon and possibly even President Trump". "I'm not a Trump apologist", she added.

The new "Roseanne" reunites Barr with John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and other original cast members, somehow getting past that Goodman's character, Dan Conner, was said to have died when the series ended its 1988-97 run.

OK, "Roseanne" fans, are you as excited for March 27 as I am?

And while Dan is coming back, some characters will not be returning.

When it comes to accurately representing the political views of people who don't live in New York City or Los Angeles, though, these rules seem not to apply.

"I've always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working class people".

Roseanne's elder daughter Becky was played by Lecy Goranson in the first five seasons before the role was taken over by Sarah Chalke.

Roseanne Barr raised the bar for social discourse through the sometimes controversial subjects her show tackled head-on during its 10-year run on ABC. "There are a lot of things he has said and done that I don't agree with, like there's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with, and so nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate".

"In the next nine episodes, there are at least a handful of them, and they come at the least suspected moments and they really are truly heartfelt and surprising".
