ABC Confirms ‘Roseanne’ Will Return to the Air, Without Roseanne Barr

ABC has made it official: The high-rated “Roseanne” is too good to give up on, and it will return to the air as “The Conners.”

Why the name change? Because the original show’s star, Roseanne Barr, will not be involved. Barr will have no creative or financial stake in the new production.

As TMZ first reported, the negotiations were being finalized and the only delay involved negotiations with Barr herself.

All the other actors have confirmed they will be returning to the show which was TV’s highest-rated sitcom in more than three years until it was abruptly canceled after Barr sent a racial tweet to former Obama White House advisor Valerie Jarrett on May 29.
