ABC Is Apparently Already Considering A Roseanne Spin-Off Centered Around Darlene

By B. Miller

By now we've all heard about Roseanne Barr's racist tweet directed toward Valerie Jarrett (former senior advisor to Barack Obama). The tweet caused ABC to abruptly cancel the Roseanne reboot. Many people supported ABC's decision, but others brought up how Roseanne's actions didn't just affect her. The TV show's cancellation also cost many writers, actors and crew members their jobs.

But ABC just might have a solution for this. Rumor has it, ABC is considering a Roseanne spin-off, but this time centering around Darlene Conner, played by Emmy Award Nominee, Sara Gilbert. Gilbert's character was revealed in the latest season as being a single mother of two. 

Some people like the new, potentially more liberal outlook of the show.
