Weeks after Roseanne was canceled, ABC has picked up its spinoff tentatively called The Conners.

Not only will the 10-episode series feature the rest of the Roseanne revival cast, it will take over the Tuesday 8 p.m. slot on the network’s schedule.

But get this… the show will feature ZERO involvement (financial and creative) from the disgraced actress. Barr said in a statement obtained by Deadline on Thursday:

“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.”

According to ABC:

“The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

There you have it…
