The first Roseanne teaser is finally here, everybody! After months of waiting, ABC released a 15-second teaser that not only gave us all the feels but also revealed the revival's premiere date! Mark your calendars because the show will premiere on March 27 at 8 PM with a special one-hour long episode. Following the special, the show will in its original Tuesday 8 PM time slot beginning on April 3rd. Are you excited? Because we literally cannot wait.

But back to the teaser! The sneak peek features Roseanne Barr‘s iconic laugh, the family's couch, and of course the sitcom's beloved theme song! “New episodes, same couch, same cast, same laugh,” the onscreen text reads. Honestly, it's the perfect first teaser.

Entertainment Weekly also shared an exclusive first look at the show earlier this week. In it, Roseanne, Dan and their daughter Darlene share a convo in bed.

“We want everybody to see something that doesn’t really exist on TV anymore — an honest family,” executive producer Bruce Helford told EW about creating the reboot. “These people are very much the core of what’s going on in the country right now.”

The complete original cast will return for the revival, including Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Michael Fishman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky). Sarah Chalke, who also played the character Becky in later seasons, will appear in another role, as well as Johnny Galecki, who will reprise his role as David.

How many shows get to make a revival with basically all of their original cast! It's so rare and the fact that we get to see them together after all these years will be amazing. On top of the OG cast, Ames McNamara and Emma Kenney have also been cast as David and Darlene’s kids.

We're so happy to have Roseanne back in our lives! It's going to be a great start to 2018.
