In the midst of all of the Roseanne drama that has gone on over the past day or two, the subject we’re honing in on right now is precisely what ABC and production company Carsey-Werner wants to do in regards to the future of the property. We know there are a lot of heated words back and forth, but we’re not really altogether interested in looking at things from a political sense. Here’s our angle: Someone was fired from the show for making a racist tweet, so what do the other parties involved in this said show going to do next?
Earlier today, we reported that there are some internal conversations from people involved over at ABC about continuing Roseanne in a slightly different form, one that would involve the actors all coming back to play new people within a new creative. Many of these actors already have contracts thanks to Roseanne, so why not just try to find another property for them? Given that these are really talented people including John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, and Laurie Metcalf, it may make sense for them all to say that they don’t want Roseanne Barr’s firing get in the way of bringing something new to the table.
Now, sources tell Deadline that within a few days, Gilbert and executive producer Tom Werner are going to meet with writers in order to determine what the future could hold. Sara and some other co-stars are apparently intrigued at the idea of coming back for more, provided that the right idea is presented that makes sense. You don’t want to just rip off Roseanne, but you also want to figure out something to do that is also going to be appealing to some of that same audience. Otherwise, what sort of potential is there? You have to realize, after all, that a new show would be a tremendous hassle, especially if Roseanne spends a lot of her time fighting on the subject via social media.
