After rumours circulated earlier this week that Roseanne would be coming back for an eight-episode revival, it now seems like the project has moved on to become more of a definite possibility.

With the initial reports claiming that Roseanne Barr would be teaming once again with original Roseanne producers Tom Werner and Bruce Helford on a new storyline, Barr has turned to Twitter to share what's really going on behind-the-scenes.

"I will let you guys know when/if there is to be a reboot of "Roseanne"," she tweeted.

"Of course I want to do a reboot of Roseanne-new political reality in our country will make for some great jokes!"

The storyline being worked on will reportedly bring back Sara Gilbert as the Conners' smart-ass daughter Darlene – although Darlene's husband David may not get a chance to return, considering actor Johnny Galecki is busy working on a little show called The Big Bang Theory.

We also have no idea how she's going to fit Dan's (John Goodman) death into it but it seems Roseanne at least has got it covered and has kindly asked for those giving her 'advice' to pack it in.

"I've already written the scenes about Dan's death-don't send me me more suggestions, thnx," she wrote.

The show famously ended with the revelation that the entire final season had been a dream after Dan had tragically died after suffering a heart attack near the end of the previous season. Which, needless to say, proved to be a hugely unpopular storyline.

But from the sounds of things, the early workings of the potential revival are in good hands – especially as Roseanne won three Golden Globes and seven Primetime Emmy Awards during its time on air, and it sounds like most of the original team are back and working on something new.

In this age of prequels, sequels, reboots and revivals it was only a matter of time before this '90s series was brought back to life, but we can't wait to see what happens.
