Roseanne brings back dead husband Dan in reboot

Roseanne brings back dead husband Dan in reboot

According to ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, actor Johnny Galecki is in contract negotiations to play David in the upcoming Roseanne reboot. It is unclear if he would be available to reprise his role as David Healy on Roseanne after re-upping his Big Bang contract. "Those conversations are still in progress", Dungey stated.

Schedule could be a factor in Galecki's return to Roseanne.

In the "real world", Dan's Season 8 heart attack had been fatal, Jackie was a lesbian, Darlene was actually with Mark, and Becky was with David. Dungey also indicated that the network is now negotiating with actor Johnny Galecki to return to the series, saying that conversations are "in progress".

In addition to questions regarding Galecki's status, Dungey also addressed questions of the fate of John Goodman's Dan Conner, who was revealed to be dead in the show's season finale in 1997.




"I wouldn't say that it will ignore the events of the series finale, but I can confirm that Dan is very much alive". "Dan is definitely still alive".

Speaking of the series finale, Dungey would not totally clarify whether the rebooted show would ignore everything that happened in the last season, or only Dan's death. "I try to just worry about the things that I can control".

"We've now heard the broad strokes of the eight episodes of the show, and we feel really confident that this will return to the show that we know and loved..." Original stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Lauri Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Alicia Goranson have already confirmed that they will return for the revival.

Roseanne is slated to premiere in midseason, with filming due to begin in October.
