Executive producer Dave Caplan previews the new characters coming to Lanford this fall.

“We have been through so much this spring and summer, so to be back together again is such a blessing,” Goranson begins, alluding to former co-star Roseanne Barr‘s controversial tweet that resulted in Roseanne‘s cancellation last spring.

Gilbert adds that many of the crew members that help to put the show together are the same people who worked on Roseanne 30 years ago, which creates a close bond on set. “To get to be around all of them, to me is just, you know, I’d do it for free,” Gilbert says.


It’s certainly a love fest for these stars as they get back on the iconic set and step into their roles!

Fans won’t want to miss out on the fun little teases and sweet moments shared in the featurette, so check out the full video below.
