“Roseanne” was canceled just a few days ago. ABC is already talking about a way to bring a version of the show back — without its namesake Roseanne Barr.
The talks with production company Carsey-Werner, which owns the show, are preliminary, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter.
But the idea is definitely enticing to ABC. A re-reboot could help keep many of the “Roseanne” cast and crew members employed.
Many critics have bemoaned the fact that more than 200 people lost work when the sitcom was canceled on Tuesday due to Barr’s racist and bizarre tweeting.
