After more than 20 years of absence, the Conner family made its grand return to our lives once more this week to no shortage of fanfare 鈥 in one hour, its reboot premiere garnered 18.2 million viewers. Those numbers, which surpassed even its series finale view count of 16.6 million back in 1997, have just ensured that they鈥檒l be around for at least one more season: ABC made the official announcement Friday that after just one episode, the show鈥檚 revival has been renewed.

鈥淲e鈥檙e thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes,鈥 Channing Dungey, ABC Entertainment President, said in a statement. 鈥淭he show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can鈥檛 wait to see what the Roseanne team has in store for next year.鈥

The season 10 premiere saw Dan Conner being brought back from the dead, attributing his 鈥渄eath鈥 to a transcript Roseanne Conner had been working on before series鈥 end.

It also introduced plenty of references to today鈥檚 politically woke society, introducing a gender-bending character in Darlene鈥檚 son Mark, who isn鈥檛 afraid to wear girls鈥 clothing, a nod to the Women鈥檚 Marches with a pink pussy hat worn by Aunt Jackie, and an interracial couple in DJ and Geena (a former black classmate he was conflicted about kissing in his youth for a school play).

Still, the show hasn鈥檛 been without its criticisms, with many, including Roxane Gay and Chrissy Teigen, denouncing it for the outspoken political views of its central figure.

Rosanne airs Tuesday nights on ABC at 8pm/7c.
