The show, which starred Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, Roseanne won three Golden Globes and seven Primetime Emmy Awards for its comedic portrayal of a dysfunctional American family. The original series lasted for nine seasons and was the most watched show in the US between 1989 and 1990. The finale draw an audience of 16 million viewers.

Fans of the show have been calling for a revival for years, and according to those seemingly in the know at The Hollywood Reporter, both Barr and Goodman are in talks with ABC and Netflix to bring the show back.

It’s believed it would air as a limited run of just eight episodes.

Roseanne, who courted controversy in recent years for her political statements and erratic public behaviour, is believed to be working with the show’s original team – producers Tom Werner and Bruce Helford – on a storyline that will bring back fan favourites Darlene and her husband David.

Darlene, played by actress Sarah Gilbert, discussed a potential show reunion with her TV father John Goodman when he visited her on her US TV show ‘The Talk’ just last month.
