In the wake of the Roseanne cancelation, it seems that the network is looking to salvage the team of actors, writers, and crew, who were let go so suddenly.
After ABC announced that Roseanne has been canceled following an offensive tweet written by the show’s lead, Roseanne Barr, sources say that the execs at ABC are looking to re-brand the show.
TMZ reports that the Roseanne reboot may be rebooted for the second time. The new revival will, however, be centered on Sara Gilbert’s character, Darlene, Roseanne’s unemployed daughter, who is a single mom.
Gilbert who was one of the persons leading the revival took to Twitter to stand against the comment made by her co-star.
Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.

Gilbert has reportedly called several cast members to gauge their interest in the event ABC gives the reboot the green light. TMZ reports that John Goodman is “very interested.”
ABC and Gilbert’s reps have not responded to requests for comment.
