"I am not mean. I'm crusty."What does the cast of 'roseanne' look like now? Roseanne originally aired from October 18, 1988 to May 20, 1997 for nine seasons. At the center of the hit sitcom is Roseanne Barr as Roseanne Conner, a working-class "domestic goddess" from Illinois with a sharp tongue and unique way of managing her household. John Goodman plays John Conner, the husband of Roseanne's character. Laurie Metcalf -- a recent Oscar nominee -- plays Roseanne's neurotic younger sister, Jackie. The role of Roseanne's eldest daughter was alternately played by Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke. Sara Gilbert plays Roseanne's artsy, tomboy daughter Darlene Conner. Other actors who have appeared on the show include George Clooney, Sandra Bernhard, Fred Willard, Johnny Galecki, Martin Mull, Estelle Parsons and even Barr's onetime husband, Tom Arnold.
After being off the air for 20 years, a 10th season of Roseanne debuted in March 2018. A lot of time has passed since we last saw the Conners and their pals. Some of the series' stars have remained in the public eye while others, such as Michael Fishman who played the young D.J. Conner, have grown up away from the spotlight.
