The Roseanne star’s latest social media post has triggered speculation about the revival of the hit series without her.

After briefly going incognito on social media following the heavy backlash for her racist tweet, Roseanne Barr recently posted that she is making amends for the pain she caused.

Roseanne has been in hot water for her pungent statement about the appearance of former White House adviser to President Barack Obama, as a result of which ABC decided to cancel the show.

According to Pop Culture, Roseanne’s latest post about restitution has sparked off the idea of a possible return of the series without Roseanne in its cast.

It is rumored that the network may soon announce the spin-off, which is likely to shift the focus of the plot from the onscreen matriarch Roseanne to the daughter’s character Darlene Conner.

The network is believed to be rounding off a few details before it is ready to break the news.

Given that actress Roseanne was also an executive producer of the show, the network would have to come up with a new plan to finance the spin-off, besides dealing with the absence of her popular character.

If the spin-off is a project that ABC decides to proceed with, they would also have to pay Roseanne her share of the new show’s revenue.

This condition is allegedly undesirable to the network, as they wish to distance themselves from the comedienne. The new show may also offer ABC new hope for reviving the financial loss that came with the cancellation of Roseanne.

Canceling the show implies that the network had to settle the accounts of the salaried actors including Sarah Gilbert, John Goodman, apart from paying large sums in cancellation fees to the production company.

While the rumors of a spinoff are yet to be confirmed, key cast member Gilbert made an appearance on The Talk to share her views about the cancellation.

Gilbert stated that she was proud of the show which reflected love, inclusion, and diversity, and was sad to witness its tragic ending, for the sake of the show and for those who lost their jobs.
