ABC’s reboot of Roseanne is back on the air after an almost decade-long hiatus. It’s changed a little but seems to have been a smash hit for ABC. Netflix will soon have season 10, or the rebooted series,
Are you unfamiliar with this show? Roseanne season 10 is a reboot of the old sitcom starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman. This series focuses on a family of working class people who struggle to manage basic life issues like money, marriage and children. Like most networks including Netflix, ABC decided to bring back Rosanne, making it especially relevant for the post-Trump age.
In the United States and indeed other Netflix regions it looks as though Roseanne won’t be coming to Netflix. We explain why the show isn’t coming to Netflix below but let’s first take a look at where it will be streaming.
For those who have cut the cord and need a streaming home of Roseanne, Hulu is the only place currently carrying the latest season of the show. You’ll have to wait for a day or two before new seasons are added though.
Much like season 10’s fate, Netflix doesn’t currently or plans to carry any of the older seasons of Roseanne either. That’s ultimately a shame as there are over 240 episodes of the show which would make a fantastic addition.
Sadly all nine seasons are exclusive to another provider in the United States and like most other ABC shows they’re often excluded from Netflix because of the parent companies ties to other providers. That’s not to say that there’s no content from ABC on Netflix but Roseanne is not currently included.
Hulu has the latest season. Amazon Prime is currently the only streaming service that offers instant streaming with a subscription. This includes all nine episodes. If it is to leave Amazon at any point, it’s likely that it’ll wind up on Hulu rather than Netflix.
We feel slightly bad for those with Netflix subscriptions looking for Roseanne streaming so instead we’ve picked out a few alternatives for you to enjoy instead.
The Ranch is the closest Netflix Original with the shows sharing similar subject matter with a working-class family working on a ranch. Netflix also recommends Fuller House and That 70’s Show as viable alternatives to the show.
