ABC revived “Roseanne” in 2018 and it instantly became the number one show in the ratings. The premiere in March brought in an impressive 18.2 million viewers.
But following Barr’s comments, the series was quickly canceled before ABC announced in June that the show would be coming back without Barr.
At the time of the announcement, the network stated in a press release that “Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series.”
John Goodman, who has played Barr’s husband Dan Conner on “Roseanne” since its debut in 1988, recently said his character will be “mopey and sad” in the spinoff.
“The Conners” will premiere on Tuesday, October 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
