Is Roseanne getting a spinoff or not? According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC is currently in negotiations with stars of the cancelled TV show.
As reported earlier, ABC cancelled the sitcom revival after star/creator Roseanne Barr posted offensive statements on Twitter. The series has already been renewed for a second season with returning cast members Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman, Alicia Goranson, Emma Kenny, and Sarah Chalke.
Now, THR says ABC is nearing a deal for a Roseanne spinoff that centers on Sara Gilbert’s character, Darlene. Fellow co-stars Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman are “tentatively on board” to join the project. However, the decision ultimately rests on Barr.
In order for the spinoff to continue, the former star/creator has to waive her rights to a considerable fee. As of reporting, it’s unclear what Barr has agreed to or not.
What do you think? Did you watch the Roseanne reboot? Would you watch the spinoff?
