ABC DISCUSSES ROSEANNE SPINOFF WITH SARA GILBERT
An anonymous source claims that ABC is in the midst of talks about bringing the revival of Roseanne as a spinoff that would focus on Darlene Conner, played by Sara Gilbert.
According to the source, Gilbert has been contacting members of the “Roseanne” cast to “gauge their interest” in a potential reboot if ABC decides to proceed. According to TMZ, actor John Goodman is “very interested.”
Executive producer Tom Werner, who produced the original series through his company Carsey-Werner, is spearheading the effort to bring the show back without Roseanne.
