Aug. 6 (UPI) -- ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey says actor Johnny Galecki may reprise his role of David in the upcoming revival of Roseanne.

The Hollywood Reporter quoted Dungey as saying Sunday talks with Galecki are "ongoing."

Galecki, current co-star on The Big Bang Theory, appeared on Roseanne Seasons 4-9.

Already confirmed to return for Season 10 in 2018 are Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson and Sara Gilbert.

TVGuide.com said some, but not all, elements of the show's controversial finale will be changed in the new episodes.

"I wouldn't say that [the revival] is ignoring the events of the finale, but I can confirm that Dan is definitely still alive," Dungey told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
