Cue that famous harmonica! It's about time to go back to Lanford, Ill. to check in on the Conner family. ABC just announced the premiere date for the Roseanne revival. 

Roseanne will return to ABC on March 27 with a special one-hour premiere at 8pm ET/PT. The show will then air in its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 8pm ET, starting on April 3.

ABC says that the revival will "explore life, death, and everything in between through the relatable, hilarious and brutally honest lens of the Conner household."

All of the show's original core cast members will be returning for the series. Including John Goodman, who played the role of Dan Conner. His character died in the plot of the show's 1997 finale. 

Johnny Galecki (David Healy) will also guest star in an episode of the show, despite his commitments to CBS' Big Bang Theory

Meanwhile, Sandra Bernhard will be reprising her role as Roseanne and Jackie's friend, Nancy Bartlett, for one episode. Plus, 90-year-old actress Estelle Parsons will revive the role of Beverly Harris (Roseanne and Jackie's mother) for two episodes.
