ABC is reportedly planning a ' Roseanne ' spinoff starring everyone but Roseanne , possibly as early as this week . Roseanne Show Canceled After Star 's Racist Tweet. ABC wouldn't have canned ' Roseanne ' over a mere 'racially charged' tweet

Just a few weeks after canceling " Roseanne " after the show's star Roseanne Barr posted racist and bizarre tweets, ABC says it is keeping the show alive -- without Barr. It will be a " spinoff " of " Roseanne ," the network announced Thursday night.

The spinoff will likely take on a different name so that Barr wouldn't benefit financially from the show as its co-creator.

The show's crew members have also turned down jobs elsewhere in the hopes that the show would continue on to a second season, TMZ reported.

ABC abruptly cancelled the show last week after Barr, an outspoken advocate for Donald Trump, posted a racist tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

The show's fans, including Mindy Kaling, have called for a spinoff for the show's remaining actors. In a series of tweets, which have since been deleted, Barr said she "begged" ABC not to cancel the show and to save other staff members' jobs.
