This week is all about confirmations! First, it was ABC confirming that Katy Perry is joining the judges' panel on their reboot of "American Idol." Well, the network has also confirmed that "Roseanne" is officially coming back! That's according to "Today." Rumors recently started swirling when John Goodman and Sara Gilbert talked about being on board for a reunion on a recent episode of her show "The Talk." Now Roseanne Barr herself has confirmed the original cast has signed on for a reboot--even both actresses that played the role of Becky. The only cast member we haven't heard from yet is Johnny Galecki, who played Darlene's love interest David Healey and now stars as Leonard on the hit sitcom "Big Bang Theory." ABC adds that there will be eight new episodes for fans to enjoy sometime next year.
