It's Confirmed! ABC Drops The Date For Season Premiere Of 'Roseanne' Spin-Off In October
July 26, 2018 13:02
Three weeks after ABC pulled the plug on the Roseanne revival, the show's executive producer, Tom Werner, announced that a spin-off would be filling the vacuum created. However, there was a twist: Roseanne Barr will not be in the new show, named The Conners.
ABC canned Roseanne after Barr released a very offensive tweet about Valerie Jarret earlier this year. In spite of her profuse apologies to the network and Jarret, ABC maintained their decision.
