ABC is reportedly looking into rebooting “Roseanne,” but this time the series will be focused on Sara Gilbert.
According to TMZ, ABC is seeing if there is a possibility of “re-branding the show and focusing on” Gilbert’s character, Darlene Conner, rather than Roseanne.
Fox News has reached out to ABC for comment.
TMZ reports that Gilbert has been contacting her “Roseanne” cast members to see how much interest they have in a potential reboot just in case the network moves forward.
One person who may be onboard is John Goodman. Goodman, who plays Roseanne’s husband and Gilbert’s father on the comedy, is reportedly “very interested.”
Gilbert and Goodman’s reps did not immediately return Fox News’ requests for comment.
In addition, Tom Werner, the producer behind “Roseanne,” is also involved in the reboot efforts, reports TMZ.
“Roseanne” was canceled on Tuesday just hours after star Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett.
