When press shots were released of the Roseanne reboot many people were left confused by the inclusion of John Goodman’s character Dan. Didn’t he die? According to the first entry on my google search he did.
Of course, this was something the show had to tackle and they did, in the show’s first trailer which aired over the weekend during the Oscars.

So the concept seems simple. Roseanne wakes up Dan, who’s wearing a mask for a CPAP machine. She then says “I thought you were dead!” Dan succinctly replies “why does everybody always think I’m dead?” So it looks as though the trailer is at least laughing off his death but how will the show actually handle it? I guess that remains to be seen.
The new Roseanne premieres March 27th.
