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)!
