The show chronicles the life of the "Conner" family, who has a limited household income and lives in the fictional town of "Lanford", Illinois. The family consists of "Roseanne", her husband "Dan", and their three children: "Becky", "Darlene", and "DJ".
After Roseanne had ended, the series' star Roseanne appeared several times as a guest actress in various other shows. From 1998 until 2000, she had her own talk show, The Roseanne Show, which then turned out to be a rating flop. However, in 2011, she published a book and started hosting a variety of shows on TV. And as you can see in the next picture, Roseanne Barr has changed in more ways than just featuring in different shows. The actress is now a blonde...
Roseanne Barr actually ran for president in 2016, naturally knowing she would never get a chance to become a "real" candidate. But she had a camera crew with her and the result was the 2016 documentary series Roseanne For President!. Her latest big project has been the much talked about comeback of her show Roseanne (with all of the original cast returning) in early 2018...
Laurie Metcalf played "Jackie Harris","Roseanne's" sister and confidant. "Jackie" does not have too much confidence in her own abilities, but plays a big role in the "Conner" household, as she takes great care of her nieces and nephew whenever "Roseanne" and "Dan" don't have enough time...
Laurie Metcalf has been acting constantly ever since "Roseanne" ended in the nineties. She had a role in Scream 2, as well as regular guest roles in Desperate Housewives, Monk and Easy Money.

John Goodman played "Roseanne's" loving husband "Dan Conner". "Dan" is an easygoing, funny family man, who, at the beginning of the series, was looking for a job, but quickly became a drywall contractor.
John Goodman made the jump to the big screen after Roseanne ended its nine-year run. In 1998, he starred in the cult film The Big Lebowski and went on to appear in productions like O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Evan Almighty and The Artist. By now, it is hard to imagine Hollywood without John Goodman!
Almost unrecognizable: John Goodman in October 2015 at the premiere of Trumbo, in which he starred aside Bryan Cranston. Goodman's most recent project is Luc Besson's Sci-Fi adventure Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

The sympathy and affection for each other remained over the years: Roseanne, pictured here reunited with her TV "children" Alicia and Michael alias "Becky" and "DJ".
