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!

Get ready for Darlene, y'all!!!!!

ABC execs are inches away from greenlighting a second reboot of Roseanne after connecting with Tom Werner, who produced the sitcom through his company Carsey-Werner, over the weekend to kick negotiations into high gear.

Sources familiar with the situation told TMZ that Werner spoke with top network suits to move forward with a Roseanne spinoff without its leading lady and reluctant Ambien spokesperson, Roseanne Barr.

Insiders say the network is working out last-minute details, which mostly revolve around Roseanne. While the network had a solid cause to fire the comedian as both the star and executive producer, it might be contractually obligated to pay her a fee or back end for her involvement in creating the show.

Of course, ABC could always argue it's a different show entirely. The potential spinoff has been speculated to focus on

Sara Gilbert continues to speak out on the controversy.

As we reported, Roseanne Barr's ABC reboot was canceled after she wrote a racist tweet against former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, which she blamed on Ambien.

Although the once and future Darlene has previously shunned her costar on social media, on Monday, the 43-year-old further elaborated her point on her other show, The Talk. She said:

"In addition to my statement, I would like to say this has been a very difficult week. A lot of people have been hurt by this. I will say I'm proud of the show we made. This show has always been about diversity, love and inclusion. And it's sad to see it end in this way. I'm sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision ABC made."

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 might never recover from this pain!

The disgraced sitcom star fired off more tweets Thursday, lamenting about her career at ABC going down the toilet and how she "begged" the network not to cancel her reboot over one silly "mistake."

In between posting self-pitying apology tweets and retweeting right-leaning supporters on how unfair her show's cancellation was, Ro-Ro revealed she made a desperate plea to Ben Sherwood hoping that the Disney/ABC Television Group President would allow her to "make amends" for her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

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)!
