ABC Renews ‘Roseanne’ for Season 11

The Number of New Episodes Ordered Have Not Been Confirmed

ABC, not surprisingly, has announced an 11th season renewal for sitcom “Roseanne,” which returned last Tuesday after a 20-year absence with a massive 21.87 million viewers, on average, for its first two episodes in season 10. With just one day of Nielsen’s delayed viewing counted, the return of “Roseanne” saw its total viewer count increase by over 3.4 million viewers.

“We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes. The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air. We can’t wait to see what the ‘Roseanne’ team has in store for next year,” said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey in a statement.
 
The series stars Roseanne Barr as Roseanne Conner, John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner, Emma Kenney as Harris Conner-Healy, Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy and Jayden Rey as Mary Conner. Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in later seasons, will also appear in another role.
 
Fan-favorite guest stars from “Roseanne” reprise their roles in the revival, including Estelle Parsons as Beverly Harris, Sandra Bernhard as Nancy Bartlett, Natalie West as Crystal Anderson, James Pickens Jr. as Chuck Mitchell and Adilah Barnes as Anne Marie Mitchell.
 
“Roseanne” is produced by Carsey-Werner Television. Executive producers include Roseanne Barr, Sara Gilbert, Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Whitney Cummings and Tony Hernandez.
