It's official: The new season of Roseanne, the groundbreaking '90s sitcom, will air this March.
A few months ago, there was a casting call for a “gender-creative child" to join the show — and…it appears someone has been cast as a new Conner grandchild as a way to "represent the world” we live in, according to Entertainment Weekly. Same family. Same couch.

A few months ago, we reported that "Roseanne" was getting a reboot--which in a lot of ways, we are excited about (considering it was a monumental and groundbreaking show for its time).

In her blunt, no nonsense style, Barr admitted these diseases will ultimately blind her as they progress. The Jewish comedian is known for her work on "Roseanne," along with her liberalism and staunch pro-Israel views. She ran for president under the Peace and Freedom Party in 2012.
