Roseanne Barr sighted in Utah following 'Roseanne' cancellation and racist tweet controversy

So, when comedienne Michelle Wolf recently criticized ABC for reviving Roseanne at all, she really said what we've all been thinking.

Recent reports have suggested that "Roseanne" could return to television screens without its title character, with numerous outlets in the USA claiming Roseanne's on-screen daughter Darlene, played by Sara Gilbert, could become the focus of the sitcom.

But ABC executives are reportedly already considering another reboot of the hit sitcom - with a new star, of course. Gilbert, 43, was one of the key people involved in bringing Roseanne back to the screen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman will still be paid for most of the scrapped second season at the tune of $300,000 an episode.

Meanwhile, sources say ABC and producer Tom Werner - whose Carsey-Werner banner exec produced the original Roseanne and its revival - are considering everything.

If you're wondering if Netflix might pick up Roseanne the same way they renewed shows like Arrested Development and Longmire, I wouldn't hold out hope.

Roseanne Barr said she pleaded with network brass to save her show before ABC cancelled it in the wake of an offensive and racist tweet by her earlier this week.

Roseanne Barr claims she fought to keep ABC from canceling "Roseanne". "I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right", she wrote. I'd worked doing publicity 4 free for weeks, travelling, thru bronchitis. Their decision came hours after Roseanne Barr, the show's star actress, tweeted a racial epithet toward a former official in the Obama administration. "I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet". "She has apologized for what she acknowledges is a violation of Torah values & in the spirit of Jewish repentance", Shmuley tweeted. I don't know exactly what's going on.
