Roseanne is coming home, y’all.

The hit ‘90s sitcom is returning to it’s original network for another round. On Tuesday, ABC confirmed that an eight-episode revival of Roseanne is finally happening, and that it will feature almost the entire original cast. Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, and Michael Fishman are all returning.

Of course, the burning question on everyone’s mind is who’s playing Becky? Well, as it turns out, the part has been offered to the woman who originated the role: Lecy Goranson! Sarah Chalke, who picked up where Goranson left off, will also return but will play a different role.
