It is the season of giving, and ABC gifted us a few looks at the Roseanne revival earlier this week. Naturally, the sitcom managed to poke fun at itself on a few occasions in the three new teasers that were just released.

Most notably, one of the clips addressed the "death" of John Goodman's character Dan Conner. In the series' original final, it was revealed that Dan Conner had passed away. Well, watch this teaser clip:

Dan tries to compare the current lineup of the Chicago Bulls with the 1996/1997 team. Quick-witted Roseanne, of course, responds to tell Dan:
“You can’t live in the past, Dan. When things are gone, they’re gone forever.” 

By the way, in that clip we see Lecy Goranson reprising her role as the "original Becky." As you may also recall she went in and out of that role a few times throughout the series.

In another clip released this week, we see Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and Dan explaining basketball to Roseanne. 

In the final clip released on Christmas day, we see Roseanne and Dan just... being Roseanne and Dan Conner:

Roseanne will return to ABC on March 27 with a special one-hour premiere at 8pm ET/PT. The show will then air in its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 8pm ET, starting on April 3.
