After canceling the comedy following star Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet, the Disney-owned network has found a way to move forward with the original cast, creators and likely crew as ‘The Conners.’
Weeks after its stunning decision to cancel Roseanne, ABC is officially moving forward with a spinoff of TV’s current No. 1 series — without controversial star Roseanne Barr.Following aggressive talks with exec producer Tom Werner, the Disney-owned broadcaster has handed out a 10-episode, straight-to-series order for Roseanne spinoff The Conners (working title). The new take, which will also be a multi-camera comedy and premiere in the fall, will follow the Conner family who, after a sudden turn of events, are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before.Where do you think the show will go from here? Let us know if you’ll be watching after this bold move.
