An iconic house in Evansville will once again be getting a lot of national attention.
ABC is bringing back the “Roseanne” television series with a reboot for the 2018 season.
The revival will bring back stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, and Laurie Metcalf, playing the same characters they did when the series ran from 1988 to 1997.
Although the show is set in fictional Lanford, Illinois, the yellow house the Conners live in is actually located on South Runnymeade Avenue in Evansville.
Eyewitness News has learned when the new “Roseanne” series airs in March, that same house in Evansville will again be used in the series.
“It is the same house as the original run of the series, and new shots were taken for the revival,” a representative from ABC confirmed to Eyewitness News.
Although the show is shot in a studio in Hollywood, the exterior of the house in Evansville is shown to set the scene.
What has become known as the ‘Roseanne House’ to many in Evansville has continued to make headlines even after the original series went off the air in 1997.
In 2013, it was listed for sale. That news made its way to Roseanne who took to Twitter showing her interest in the house.
The creator of the original “Roseanne” series, Matt Williams, is an Evansville native who attended the University of Evansville, which is just a few blocks away from the house.
We’re told some University of Evansville students currently live in the house.
The new “Roseanne” series is set to premiere on Tuesday, March 27 on ABC (WEHT).
