Roseanne to be killed off on spinoff ABC show

He added: "I know, I know, for a fact that she's not a racist".

Goodman said he did message Barr during that time, saying: 'She had to sign a paper saying that she relinquished all her rights to the show so that we could go on'. I was broken-hearted. I went through a period, about a month, where I was very depressed. "But that had a great deal to do with it, more than I wanted to admit".

The network's swift decision to pull the plug on the highest-rated sitcom of the 2017-2018 TV season was also shocking to him.

Asked of his character, Dan's, future in the new series, Goodman said, "I guess he'll be mopey and sad because his wife's dead".

ABC fired Barr in May and ultimately she agreed to allow the show she created to continue with the other original castmembers and rebranded as The Conners.

Disney's streaming service is reportedly named 'Disney Play'
Now excuse me as I brood over the fact that " Disney Play" doesn't sound almost as catchy as my choice of name, " Disney Direct". It's one of a "suite" of planned direct-to-consumer services, which Iger says is "the biggest priority of the company" in 2019.

Barr will have no financial or creative input in the new series.

John Goodman is speaking out about ABC's swift decision to cancel "Roseanne" in May after its star, Roseanne Barr, was sacked following a racially insensitive tweet aimed at former senior adviser to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett. Little is known about how the show will move on without the woman who started it all, but, if comments from actor John Goodman are to be taken literally, it appears ABC is going the Two and a Half Men route of killing her off. Many saw the tweet as racist, but Barr has denied the charges, saying that she didn't know her target was African-American.

In the wake of Roseanne Barr's firing from her own show revival on ABC, the network and the rest of the cast is moving on with a Roseanne-less spinoff, The Conners.

"I've never tweeted or twarted, it's not useful for me", Goodman said. Another pause. "And that's probably all I should say about it, Goodman told the outlet about the reaction to Barr's tweet". The Times' journalist reported that the actor was quiet for so long, she thought he wasn't going to answer.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show".
