'Roseanne' Pokes Fun At Dan's Death In New Revival Promos

When we first heard Roseanne was coming back on air, everyone from casual watchers to mega fans squealed in delight.

Slowly but surely, we've been given details on the revival by cast and crew, from "who will be returning?" to "what will happen to the second Becky?"

While we were elevated that John Goodman (who played Roseanne's husband Dan Conner) will be returning for the reboot, fans were unclear how the series would incorporate him into the show as his character had passed away from a fatal heart attack in the series finale.

Theories of Dan's resurrection circulated the web, with people suggesting his death was just another dream sequence, he's become a ghost, or the revival will ignore that plot line entirely.

Earlier this year, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said while he wouldn't reveal how the Conner patriarch will be reintroduced, but he will be alive.

"I don’t want to talk too specifically, but I wouldn’t say we’ll ignore the events of the finale," Dungey says. "Dan is definitely still alive."

While his words failed to answer our burning question, we have now been temporarily pacified as the beloved sitcom has released three promos, all including Goodman.
