TMZ spoke to a source close to the drama, who relayed that "the powers that be at (US network) ABC are exploring the possibility of re-branding the show and focusing on the character Darlene instead of Roseanne".
Yahoo Entertainment reached out to ABC and a representative for Gilbert but did not immediately receive a response. By Tuesday afternoon, as the writers of Roseanne gathered for their first day of work on the show's second series, the television channel ABC had cancelled the show, which would have earned it tens of millions of pounds.
That's why the cast - which includes John Goodman and Sara Gilbert - were 'always on edge, ' according to a report from People. She also added a note that she's the most sad about Jayden Rey, the young woman who played Roseanne's black granddaughter on the revival sitcom.
On Tuesday, Barr was sacked and her number-one show abruptly canceled over a racist tweet where Barr compared former-Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett, a black woman, to an ape. "Everyone's been saying it's so courageous of ABC to cancel their biggest hit show".

South Korea's Blue House on Monday quashed suggestions a formal end to the Korean War could be announced at the Trump-Kim summit. No had formerly overseen the military's financial issues as the chair of the Second Economy Commission, Kim said.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", the brief statement said.
Barr apologised for her tweet, saying she had made a bad joke and that she has been a longtime champion of civil rights.
Yet, while it is unclear if the reboot will move forward, the one thing that seems certain is that Gilbert and other top Roseanne stars will still get paid.
Michelle Wolf slammed ABC in a new episode of her Netflix show for hiring Roseanne Barr despite her history of being "openly racist". I'd worked doing publicity for them for free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis.
The assertion that Jarrett has a connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, which she does not, also sparked intense anger on social media. I should have known better. "I begged [for] people's jobs". "The more I have the more my words will have weight", she tweeted.
