We're still a short ways away from the big premiere of ABC's Roseanne revival, and the network has been trying to hype fans up with the first looks at what we can expect to see from the hit sitcom's big return. The 2018 Golden Globe Awards also did some excitement-stoking by bringing Roseanne Barr and John Goodman out as presenters for the Best TV Series Drama. It was a nice and limited slice of what we can probably expect from the two TV legends.

It was perhaps strange that Roseanne Barr and John Goodman took the stage for the Best TV Drama award, considering they led one of TV's most popular comedies through the '80s and '90s. But it almost felt like that choice was reverse-engineered by giving her a chance to bring up her sometimes vitriolic nature, as she made that comment about being known for causing drama. But as Goodman stated, her drama doesn't win the awards like her comedy has in the past. And assuming the storytelling is up to snuff, the Roseanne revival will possibly find itself on the receiving end of even more TV awards in the future. (Roseanne swept the comedy categories in 1993, and both Barr and co-star Laurie Metcalf respectively won one and three Emmys for their performances.)

Beyond the short teaser and random images we've seen, this award presentation was the first time we've gotten to see Roseanne Barr and John Goodman back together again. (Okay, maybe they've done interviews and they were on the red carpet, but you know what I mean.) And while their big moment was likely cut down because the Golden Globes' runtime almost immediately started running over, it still imparted Barr's comedic timing for dealing blithe barbs.

Of course, not everyone is so happy to see Roseanne return, as Roseanne Barr herself has been a force to be reckoned with on social media with often controversial posts. Many have wondered if Barr's political leanings would bleed into the show itself, but showrunner Bruce Helford and the cast have said this show is about bringing disparate viewers together, rather than driving down a deeper wedge. It'll be interesting to see how things turn out, and whether or not Roseanne can win over those most critical about the actress herself.

But the Golden Globes was definitely happy to bring some "Roseanne and Dan" magic to their telecast, and the show also took another second on social media to give kudos to one of the most memorable TV couples of all time.

With just about every lead character returning in some capacity, Roseanne is set to return to ABC on Tuesday, March 27, at 8:00 p.m. ET. There are lots of other new and returning shows on the way as well, so be sure to check and bookmark our midseason premiere schedule.
