Looks like Roseanne’s big mouth may benefit Darlene a.k.a Sara Gilbert. ABC is considering running a new spin off of Roseanne but making Darlene the main focus.
According to TVLine, Darlene was one of five offshoots proposed to the network in the wake of Tuesday’s drama. TMZ reports that Gilbert has been calling cast members to gauge their interest, and John Goodman seems eager. Tom Werner, whose company produced Roseanne, is also involved in the effort, according to the outlet. CNN has confirmed the reports as well.
Since Roseanne’s inappropriate comment on Valerie Jarret, it has been said the TV star was not doing well. She blamed her misconduct on Ambien, however that was not enough to secure her position. Her co star Sara Gilbert sent a tweet out stating that Roseanne’ s reaction are not that of the companies beliefs.
That tweet may have been the enlightment to Roseanne’s dark downfall.
Darlene has always been a star in her own right from the show, and since it is depicting her adult life, it makes it possible for fans to accept Darlene as the main character.
