If you remember, Roseanne was cancelled recently after Roseanne Barr went on a racist Twitter rant. The same day, ABC network cancelled the show even after the amazing ratings. It left a lot of people stunned including the cast who were all ready for getting into production for season 2.
Since the rest of the cast was not a part of the controversy, there was a lot of speculation about a potential spin-off and now it is finally happening! ABC has officially picked up a Roseanne spin-off called The Conners with everyone but Roseanne Barr. And Roseanne gave her blessing.
