Default ABC's "The Conners" (Season 2)

ABC has greenlit a spinoff series of the now-canceled "Roseanne" -- without the show's embattled star.

On Thursday, the network announced that much of the cast of "Roseanne," including John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman, are set to reprise their iconic roles in the new show, currently named "The Conners" as a working title.

Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series, according to the network.

"The Conners" will air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

“The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago,” ABC shared in a statement.

In a joint statement, the announced cast members of the spinoff said they have received a “tremendous amount of support” from fans.

“We have received a tremendous amount of support from fans of our show, and it’s clear that these characters not only have a place in our hearts, but in the hearts and homes of our audience,” the statement read. “We all came back last season because we wanted to tell stories about the challenges facing a working-class family today. We are so happy to have the opportunity to return with the cast and crew to continue to share those stories through love and laughter.”

Tom Werner will executive produce the show.

Last month, "Roseanne" was canceled after Barr tweeted racist remarks about former Obama adviser Valarie Jarrett -- who is African-America -- and compared her to an ape.

ABC is the parent company of ABC News.

Pass. It should never have come back in the first place, and this is just absurd.

I'm in. At the very least, it should be interesting to see just how they go about it...

As someone who constantly re-watches season 10, I'm excited.

The trainwreck factor gives them one good shot to keep what is likely to be a fairly decent sized audience who will tune in to see the fallout in the first episode.

Oh, and kevin87?

Sandy Duncan will show up as Dan's new girlfriend, along with her son Ashton Kutcher, brother James Garner, and his son David Spade. They'll all live in a hotel run by Cal Pettite.

Can’t wait for this.

The show’s best characters are Dan, Jackie and Darlene and I had a crush on Becky when I was young.

As long as there's a gift shop attached to it run by Mackenzie Astin and Cloris Leachman.

Adult Becky is surprisingly my fave from the new season.

Kill off Roseanne, and Jackie has to pay for her funeral and can't afford her own apartment so she moves in.

You know, the replacement character show is starting to sound like a better idea than The Conners.

As long as they get the little kid from the final season of Chico and the Man and Beau DeLabarre.

Well, a lot of behind the scenes people bugged out around the time of the flameout.

I wonder if Whitney Cummings and Wanda Sykes will be back now?

I'll give it a chance but I'm skeptical. One of the main premisses of the show was watching how Roseanne doesn't relate to the rest of the family so it creates conflict. So is this gonna be a sitcom where everyone agrees with each other and they just sit around the table nodding? If you're gonna cancel the show, cancel the show. But like I said I'll still give it a chance.

Roseanne was easily the weakest link of the revival, so this should work out just fine.

I agree. And John Goodman was the best part.

They’re already calling Ashton Kutcher and Christopher Plummer to fill in.

They are most likely going to kill the Roseanne character off... my worry is that the remaining episodes will be tinged with sadness... i mean, how could this family survive with the loss of their mother/wife/sister who was so central to their lives??

But they cant spend too much time on it, because they want to distance themselves from Roseanne in real life, so if she is dead, and they arent truly affected by it, it wont ring true.

As i wrote this, im thinking they wont kill her off, it just seems like too hard to work around if she dies.

Maybe she is off taking care of her mother or something to that effect. Just going to be tough to work around Roseanne not being a part of Dan/ Jackie/ Darlene/ Becky/ and D.J's life.

James Garner probably looks like Keith Richards now since he has been dead for 4 years.

Maybe it will go ahead a year or so after her death. They could bring in Leah Remini and Kevin James as their next door neighbors.
