While there have been talks surrounding Johnny Galecki’s return to the Roseanne revival, the Big Bang Theory star was confirmed for a role by executive producer Whitney Cummings.

Cummings shared an Instagram story from the production of the revival, where she featured a snapshot of Galecki’s seat on set.

Sara Gilbert will also return as Darlene. ABC has already cast the two children of Darlene and David, Ames McNamara as 8-year-old Mark and Shameless actress Emma Kenney as teenage daughter Harris.

Galecki joins Barr (herself), John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Gilbert (Darlene), Michael Fisherman (D.J.) and Lecy Goranson (Becky). Sarah Chalke, who played Becky while Goranson was attending college in the revival, will also return but in a new role.

The Roseanne revival is set to return in 2018.
