From 2005-07, Anchor Bay released all 9 seasons of the sitcom starring America's "domestic goddess," but those all went out of print and a "complete series" set was never before put together. Since late 2011, after picking up the license, Mill Creek Entertainment has been re-releasing the individual season sets at much lower prices, and so far the first six are in stores. The seventh and eight will hit the streets tomorrow, so what better time than now for Mill Creek to announce this? On May 14th
you'll see releases of both Roseanne - Season 9
and - for the first time ever - Roseanne - The Complete Series
Roseanne - Season 9 comes on 3 discs for just 14.98 SRP, and for extras includes Interviews with the Cast and Crew, Blooper and Highlight Reels, Video Commentary, Fans' Top Questions, a Candid Interview with Roseanne, and "much much more!" Notable guest stars for this season include George Clooney, Jerry Springer, Steven Seagal, Ed Asner, Jim Varney, Tammy Faye Bakker, Dina Merrill, Joanna Lumley, Jennifer Saunders, Arianna Huffington, Marlo Thomas, James Brolin, Debbie Reynolds, Rainer Hahn, Hugh Hefner, Milton Berle, Robin Leach, Todd Oldham, Tony Robbins and Kathleen Sullivan.

A couple of our readers have asked us, on Facebook and Twitter whether The Complete Series
will consist of the uncut episodes. We've checked in with Mill Creek, and they assure us that, "Yes, it's the uncut episodes. There are a few occasions of music replacement...which are unavoidable, but we do indeed have the original broadcast edits of all episodes - not the syndicated cuts as previously released.
" That's great to know!
