‘Roseanne’ is back on March 27 — how American families have changed since 1988

Roseanne Barr is returning to her old sitcom. But will anything look the same?

Three decades after the seminal sitcom, “Roseanne,” appeared on ABC on Oct. 18, 1988 and became a voice of working-class Americans for a generation, it’s coming back for an eight-episode run on the same network, with its first new episode set to air on March 27.

The original series centered on a working-class family living in the fictional town of Lanford, Ill. When the show premiered, Roseanne (played by Roseanne Barr) was a mother of three who worked in a plastics factory. Her husband Dan (John Goodman) made his living as a drywall contractor.
