Sara Gilbert stands behind ABC's decision to cancel 'Roseanne'

Sara Gilbert stands behind ABC's decision to cancel 'Roseanne'

"I want to give her space to reflect on the recent events and releasing the recording is a decision she will make at the appropriate time".

"A lot of people have been hurt by this". However, while ABC stands by firing Barr, they may have to pay her a fee or back end for her creation of the show. And it's sad to see it end in this way.

This image released by ABC shows Sara Gilbert, left, and Roseanne Barr in a scene from "Roseanne". Less than a week after canceling Roseanne over a controversial tweet sent by show star Roseanne Barr, The Hollywood Reporter has announced that ABC is getting closer to greenlighting a Roseanne spinoff.

Sara took to Twitter to respond to Barr's comments.

Industry sources say that Gilbert and fellow "Roseanne" executive producers Tom Werner and Bruce Helford met Monday with ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.




Hours before news broke of the show's cancellation, Gilbert tweeted Tuesday that Barr's comments were "abhorrent". Gilbert's reaction comes not long after rumors spread of a potential spinoff focusing on her character Darlene and featuring the rest of the cast sans Barr.

Gilbert emphasized she stands by the network's decision to cancel the series. The show brings back numerous original program's stars, including Barr and Gilbert, as well as John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf. A parody sketch of the show featuring Gilbert and original "Roseanne" cast mate John Goodman helped spark the idea for the reboot in 2017.

"And she said yes and I went to Boston and then I got this call that she had fallen in a park and had like 45 stitches and wasn't allowed to travel".

Roseanne was quickly renewed for a second season before the abrupt cancellation.
