We're counting down the days until the Roseanne revival returns in 2018 for a nine-episode reboot.

It also wasn't afraid to explore some rather controversial issues from domestic violence to gender stereotypes. By addressing these topics on-screen, the show encouraged families to discuss and reflect on the same issues at home.
