Roseanne is a sitcom that aired on ABC.

The show centers on the Conners, an American working-class family struggling to get by on a limited household income in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois. The family is led by outspoken matriarch Roseanne, married to husband Dan, with three children: Becky, Darlene, and D.J. In Season 8, Roseanne and Dan have a fourth child, Jerry.

While the show enjoyed a successful revival in 2018, it was cancelled after one season following a controversial tweet from star Roseanne Barr. Later the same year, ABC commissioned a spin-off The Conners, which will continue the story of the titular family without Roseanne.
