Roseanne, the 1990s sitcom that won praise for its portrayal of the working-class Conner family, is coming back to television in March. ABC announced Friday that the revival of Roseanne will air at 8 pm ET March 27 in an hour-long special premiere.
ABC has scheduled the reprised sitcom to air in the 8 pm Tuesday time slot, beginning April 3. Roseanne ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997. ABC announced in May it would produce a 10th eight-episode season.

Barr will executive produce, along with Sara Gilbert, Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Whitney Cummings, and Tony Hernandez.
