‘ABC’ Announced New Rosanne Spinoff ‘The Connors’ Without Creator Rosanne Bar

‘ABC’ trying to save their golden egg, has announced that the rebooted show ‘Roseanne’ will be back on the airwaves. The show was canceled in May after Barr went on a racist Twitter rant against a former Obama official. The network announced the show is returning in the fall, with the title, ‘The Conners.’ The network ordered ten episodes for the time being and will begin to air in the fall of 2018. The main characters, played by John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, have all signed on to do the spinoff.

The network hinted that the Roseanne character will die, and the new show will deal with her loss, and moving on without a loved one. It will also focus on social issues ‘that were as important 30 years ago as they are today. The actors also issued a joint statement, that read, “We have received a tremendous amount of support from fans of our show, and it’s clear that these characters not only have a place in our hearts, but in the hearts and homes of our audience. We all came back last season because we wanted to tell stories about the challenges facing a working class family today.”

The statement went on to say that the cast and crew are so happy and excited that they will have the opportunity to continue to tell those stories, ‘with laughter and love.’ ABC was very specific in claiming that Barr will have no involvement with the new show, ‘no creative input and no financial gain.’ Friends of the actress have been making claims of late, that Barr is not doing well mentally nor emotionally. They claim the actress is very concerned that she will not be getting any more acting jobs after the Twitter fallout. Barr had to agree to let the show continue in any fashion, since she created the show and the characters.
