Post-Roseanne cancellation and development

On May 29, 2018, ABC cancelled Roseanne, following racist remarks made by Roseanne Barr, who starred as Roseanne Conner, on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former advisor to Barack Obama. Some time after the cancellation was confirmed, some news sources announced that the show could possibly be retooled as a spin-off focusing on Sara Gilbert's character of Darlene. Around June 15, 2018 reports emerged that ABC was close to making a deal to indeed continue the show as a Darlene-centric show. Though it is also possible that it will be entitled “The Conners”, and would center around the whole family. The spinoff will only go forward assuming Barr signs a deal to give up rights to the show, meaning she won’t be involved creatively or financially. Barr will likely receive a one time payment in return. If the spinoff happens, Barr’s racism scandal will be addressed on the show.

On June 21, 2018, it was announced that ABC had officially ordered a 10-episode spin-off tentatively titled The Conners, and that it would involve every cast member except Barr.
