To celebrate the launch of It’s A Stampede!, every day for the next year I will be presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

May 17th – On this day in 2017, Deadline reports that US sitcom, Roseanne is to be revived. According to the report, Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and Michael Fishman will all return for a Roseanne revival, picking up where they left off twenty years ago, as the slightly dysfunctional Conners family. Lecy Goranson will also make a return as Becky, alongside Sarah Chalke (the other Becky) who will be taking on a new role.

More tomorrow…
