Roseanne Barr Releases Statement After 'Roseanne' Spinoff News

Roseanne Barr is addressing the news that a Roseanne spinoff is officially coming to ABC without her.

The 65-year-old actress released a statement addressing the new show titled The Conners after ABC announced that she will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series after reaching a settlement with series producer Tom Werner.

“I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from Roseanne,” Roseanne said in a statement. “I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”

ABC hasn’t revealed how Roseanne‘s character will be written off the show, but describes the family having to deal with a “sudden turn of event.”

Last month, ABC cancelled the Roseanne spinoff after Roseanne sent out a racist tweet about President Obama‘s adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The Conners is set to premiere this fall.
