Everything old is new again! 

Paramount Network announced Tuesday the addition of classic episodes of “Roseanne” to its weekday lineup. The decision comes in the wake of the series revival’s unprecedented ratings on ABC.  

The sitcom, centered around a blue-collar family in the heart of middle America, originally debuted on ABC in 1988 and ran for nine seasons. 

The show’s reboot garnered phenomenal ratings for its premiere last month, with 18.2 million viewers tuning in to reunite with the ever-controversial Conner family. 

“Roseanne” will debut on Paramount Network with a marathon, airing from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. PDT April 17.

The sitcom will then move to its permanent time slot with four half-hour episodes airing each weekday from 4 to 6 p.m. PDT.
