The New Roseanne Trailer Hints at How They’ll Address Dan’s “Death” in the Reboot

Although we’re excited about the Roseanne reboot, we do have one lingering question: how are they going to address the series finale death of Dan Conner? The beloved ’90s comedy is bringing back the show’s original cast, including John Goodman, who played the Conner patriarch from 1988 to 1997. That means Dan’s death is likely going to be ignored à la the Will & Grace revival. We get a taste of the tongue-in-cheek way they’re going to tackle that plot twist in the latest teaser for Roseanne, above.

While Dan and Becky (Alicia Goranson) watch a Bulls game, he brags about how the 1996-97 team is so much better than the current line-up, to which Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) fires back, “You can’t live in the past, Dan. When things are gone, they’re gone forever!” Very clever, you guys. See the rest of the trailers below before the reboot premieres on March 27!
