Oct. 19 (UPI) -- ABC has shared on social media two photos from the first table read of its revived sitcom Roseanne.
One image clearly shows the faces of returning stars Roseanne Barr, Laurie Metcalf, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman and Sarah Chalke -- along with new cast members and the behind-the-scenes team -- who are sitting with their scripts.
A second photo captures Barr, Metcalf and Goodman laughing at the table, while the sitcom's well-known kitchen and living room sets can be seen in the background.
The Emmy-winning series about a working-class Illinois family initially ran 1988-97. It is expected to return with fresh episodes next year.
"Roseanne is coming back to ABC in 2018! Here's a look at the first table read!" the sitcom's Twitter account captioned the photos.
