'Roseanne' Officially Picked Up For Season 11

Roseanne kids

Roseanne fans rejoice! The revival is set to extend its run on television with ABC quickly renewing the show for a second season.

All of the original "Roseanne" cast members returned for the revival, including John Goodman as Roseanne's (Roseanne Barr) husband, who died in the final season 21 years ago. "We can't wait to see what the "Roseanne" team has in store for next year", said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.

After "Roseanne" drew 18.2 million viewers and a mighty 5.1 rating among adults younger than 50 on Tuesday, a renewal was all but inevitable.

Following the premier, Barr received a call from President Donald Trump congratulating her on the success of the show.

Noting Trump's disinterest in scripted programming, Poniewozik said "I doubt he will ever watch Roseanne, but in his mind, a "pro TRUMP" thing won".

Trump often talks or tweets about shows' ratings, sometimes comparing them to when he was on "The Apprentice". The hour-long premiere had 18.1 million viewers and has risen to 21.9 million who have watched it after the premiere date thanks to streaming and downloading platforms. "And it was about us!".

In a tweet posted Friday night, the "Roseanne" star alleged that Trump was breaking up human trafficking rings and freeing "hundreds" of children in sex slavery around the world every month. Like her eponymous show, Barr's history of bigotry is now in a new spotlight. While the original show provided an honest, "warts and all look" at Middle America, he added, the current show glazes over the fact that Roseanne is turning "a blind eye to Trump's many, many bigoted statements". "Hence Barr's tweets about massive pedophile networks". Barr was the Peace and Freedom Party candidate (the Green Party chose Jill Stein over her). With the character Roseanne's political stance, it also taps the more conservative viewers. But the show has a huge elephant in the room that carries from scene to scene-I loved it, but I felt guilty watching. "Half the country voted for him (Trump), half of them didn't. It's actually a Hollywood fantasy of what Trump voters are: people who agree with Hollywood elites on values, but just disagree on economics because they're old white factory workers".

"You're always nervous before you do something, and we're so grateful to the fans", she shared with her fellow co-hosts of the series.
