The first footage of Johnny Galecki on the Roseanne revival series has officially hit the net. Galecki was the last member of the original cast to sign on and many fans were concerned that the Big Bang Theory star wasn't going to be able to participate in the revival series. The actor dispelled rumors that he was holding out for more money and states that he was just simply too busy. Though it was big news when it was announced that Johnny Galecki was back, it's now confirmed in the brand-new trailer for the Roseanne revival trailer.
In the brief clip, Johnny Galecki's David Healy character is back in Darlene's room where he says, "They kept everything exactly the same as it was when you guys were kids," looking pretty amused. Sara Gilbert's Darlene deadpans, "It's a decorating choice called poverty." It's exactly the sort of exchange that you'd expect from the duo who dated on and off throughout the original Roseanne run. The trailer also features previously unseen footage of D.J. (Michael Fishman) and Darlene discussing credit cards with their parents, Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and Dan (John Goodman).
Though the return of Johnny Galecki is definitely exciting for fans of Roseanne, his part in the trailer isn't even the best part. The best scene is saved for last and it features Roseanne riding on an electric staircase chair up the stairs. The electric stair lift seems like something that the Conner family should have had a long time ago. The chicken shirt is also on display as it has been in almost all of the new promotional material for the revival series.
We previously got a peek at the new opening credits for the Roseanne revival series and it's an homage to the original run of the show, and yes, it features the chicken shirt and a laughing Roseanne Barr. Throughout the years, the chicken shirt ended up on many different members of the cast, even John Goodman's Dan character. A behind-the-scenes look at the show revealed that the chicken shirt, along with the instantly recognizable blanket on the couch and some pickled eggs in the pantry were all very important to the returning cast members.
Roseanne will kick off its 9-episode revival with an hour-long episode on Tuesday, March 27th from 8 to 9 PM before settling into its normal Tuesday 8 PM slot on April 3rd. It's been over 20 years since we last saw the Conner family all together and now is the perfect time to see them tackle the American family in 2018. How will the Conner family react to the trends in 2018? We only have a few days to go to finally find out.
