ABC announced on Thursday it had ordered a new series featuring the characters of Roseanne, tentatively titled The Conners, with a 10-episode order to premiere this fall. The move comes more than three weeks after Barr’s Twitter scandal that led to the cancellation of the Roseanne revival — and this time, Barr will not be involved.
In a statement to ET on Thursday, Barr reacted to the news, revealing that she had let the show move forward without her creative or financial participation. “I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from Roseanne. I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved,” she said.
