Get out your fish sticks—Roseanne is returning to the silver screen. The beloved working-class family comedy is set to make a grand homecoming to ABC for an eight-episode stint in mid-2018.

"The Conners’ joys and struggles are as relevant—and hilarious—today as they were then," said ABC President Channing Dungey in a statement. "There’s really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne."

The show originally ran for nine season in the late '80s and '90s, where it received critical and audience acclaim, winning 17 Emmys, 14 Golden Globes and a Peabody, among others. 

Roseanne's original cast featured Roseanne Barr in the title role, with John Goodman as her husband, Laurie Metcalf as her sister, and Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, Sarah Chalke and Lecy Goranson as the family's children. They'll all return for the anticipated revival, with Chalke taking on a new role, according to the LA Times.  

The show doesn't yet have a premiere date, but for now, reflect on this sizzle reel of some great moments from the past:
