ABC Creates New Roseanne Spinoff “The Conners” Without Roseanne

By Nick Baum

FRIDAY – 6/22/18

ABC has announced that they will be created a brand new spin off TV series based off of the original Roseanne series, which was unexpectedly cancelled after main actress Roseanne Barr tweeted racist comments on Twitter.

The show was reported to feature all of the feature stars from the original Roseanne show, just without Roseanne herself. Other than the plans on the show, there is not much known about what will be occurring in the new show, or what the premise is, but many speculate it will not involve the original Roseanne.

In the original show, Roseanne was a Trump supporter, and every episode featured a different premise and different stance that she would argue about with other people. The show brought mixed reactions, with some applauding explaining how Trump supporters aren’t included in talks of diversity, while others called it out saying “it isn’t right” and should be about something else. However, the new spinoff series will be temporary, with only ten episodes being included, one per week and with the possibility of a second season.
