Dec. 15 (UPI) -- The highly-anticipated revival of Roseanne will premiere on ABC in March.

The network announced the news in a tweet Friday alongside a short teaser for Season 10 of the beloved sitcom.

The promo shows a shot of the Conner family living room. It opens with the Roseanne theme song and ends with the sound of star Roseanne Barr's laugh.

"Roseanne premieres March 27," the video reads. "Same couch, same cast, same laughs."

Variety reported the revival will premiere with a special hour-long episode, with nine episodes to air in total. The original show had a nine-season run on ABC from 1988 to 1997.

Barr will return as Roseanne Conner, with John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Michael Fishman as D.J. Connor and Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner-Healy. Johnny Galecki will also reprise David Healy.

"We have got our Johnny Galecki back on 'Roseanne' this episode - what a joy to work with such a deeply empathetic actor," Barr tweeted in November.
