Roseanne Spinoff 'Clears Key Hurdle' As Legal Wrangling, TV Negotiations Heat Up Again At ABC

no title

ABC hasn't given up on the proposed Roseanne reboot spinoff, even as they try to figure out a way to make it happen without disgraced star Roseanne Barr keeping some of the profits considering she helped create the original concept.

But while negotiations are ongoing and legal wrangling has been underway, it increasingly looks like Barr may get paid off — at least in part — to walk away from the characters she helped create and allow the spinoff to continue, according to a report out this morning in THR.

ABC Is Still Looking At A Roseanne Spinoff Without The Title Star, But There's One BIG Problem…

no title

After ABC canceled Roseanne late last month due to star Roseanne Barr's undeniably racist comments about a former advisor to President Barack Obama, most fans of the re-booted show figured that was pretty much it for ever seeing it on TV again.

But not so fast! ABC hinted soon after the cancellation, and they are still exploring avenues now, that might allow them to re-boot the show around Sara Gilbert's character while cutting Barr out of it altogether!

One Contestant Makes Becca Kufrin 'Feel A Little Bit Sick' After THIS Confession — & Everything Else You Missed On The Bachelorette!

The drama is starting early on The Bachelorette!

On Monday night's episode of the ABC series, Becca Kufrin had a lot on her plate with two group dates and a one-on-one with Blake!

Clay, Nick, Chris R., David (chicken suit guy), Jean Blanc, Jordan, Connor, and Lincoln all join Becca for a day of pampering only to get down and dirty during an obstacle course hosted by former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay and her fiancé, Bryan Abasolo.

Despite there being some debate over whether or not he cheated, Lincoln won the challenge — and was sure to boast about it with his prize (a picture of him and Becca) at the evening portion of the date. Connor is triggered by seeing the picture on the table, so he throws it out in the pool, shattering the glass and also all of Lincoln's hopes and dreams.

Despite the immature fighting over a stupid picture, Becca is able to form a connection with Jean Blanc, who ultimately gets the date rose.

Will ABC Replace Roseanne With Darlene??

no title

Innerestingly, Roseanne tweeted about a woman named Valerie — and her show could face the same fate as the TV show Valerie, which was renamed The Hogan Family after its star was fired.

After her racist tweets got her fired, we'd heard ABC couldn't use any of the characters created by Roseanne for a spinoff — but latest word says the network may be open to the possibility after all.

In this case, fans could continue to follow the Connor family but with a focus on the adult Darlene.

TMZ's sources say Sara Gilbert, who also served as an EP on the revival, has been working with producer Tom Werner to retool the revival, something the network would be happy with since they're already paying the cast for another season.

Sources say Sara has already been calling her costars to see if they want to come back — and John Goodman is already on board!

In Valerie, the titular character was killed off between seasons. We'd be curious to see what ABC does with Roseanne Connor if the show continues.

Would YOU watch Darlene??

Roseanne Barr Considers 'Fighting Back' Against Cancellation & Insists She Is 'Not A Racist'

no title

Roseanne isn't over yet… so says the star!

As we reported on Tuesday, ABC canceled Roseanne Barr's reboot after the comedian wrote a racial tweet against former Barack Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett (which Barr blames on Ambien).

On Wednesday, the controversial TV star returned from her short-lived Twitter exit to proclaim that she is "not a racist" and has fought for "civil rights [for] all minorities" throughout her lifetime.

ABC Might Air Roseanne Spinoff — With A Big Twist!

no title

After Roseanne's racist tweets got her show canceled, many felt it was unfair to punish the rest of the cast and crew, not to mention fans of the hit sitcom.

Jimmy Kimmel, for instance, suggested killing the titular character off Two And A Half Men style and just calling the show Dan.

But could the supporting cast of Roseanne really come back for a spinoff without their hate-spewing matriarch?

The problem is Roseanne created the show and has co-creator credit for the other characters — meaning even if she's not on the show, she's making money off it.

But according to EW's sources, ABC may have another option — use all the supporting cast and writers (whom they already have to pay for another season) in a brand new show!

A sitcom with Laurie Metcalf, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Sarah Chalke, and no racism? Sounds like something all of America could get behind!

See what that might just look like (below)!
