New this week Trivia: The show's ninth and original final season received a great deal of backlash due to its differences from prior seasons, plot-twists and the revelation that Dan had died of a heart attack during the finale. When the series was revived in 2018 for a tenth season, it was revealed that outside of a few cheeky inside-jokes, the ninth season was going to be largely ignored and was no longer considered canonical, and that the entire original cast (including Dan) was set to return. (Whew!).
Trivia: Three of Roseanne's ex-husbands have appeared or worked on the show during its run. Her first husband, Bill, wrote a few episodes for the show and played Dan's friend, Freddy, in a season one episode. Tom Arnold, her second husband, played Arnie and was an executive producer. Finally, her third husband, Ben Thomas, had a cameo as a police officer who pulled her and Jackie over in an episode later in the show's run.
