Now, an intriguing report on Page Six suggests that Barr is contemplating cutting herself out of any deal in order to allow the new show to go ahead, in an effort to make amends to cast and crew on the cancelled ABC reboot.

Page Six reports that Barr is “seriously considering” ofits from the new show, which would focus on another family member—most likely Darlene.

Roseanne Barr Speaks Out After ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff Is Picked Up

  Roseanne Barr Speaks Out After ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff Is Picked Up Roseanne Barr has spoken out since the announcement of the spin-off.“I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from Roseanne,” the 65-year-old actress said in a statement to Us Weekly. “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.

A Roseanne spinoff that wisely omits Roseanne is all but a done deal at this point. Multiple sources report that execs and creatives are working on a way to bring the show back with almost the entire cast and crew , while omitting Roseanne Barr herself.

ABC. (LOS ANGELES) -- Roseanne Barr has gone from apologizing for her tweet about Valerie Jarrett, which many saw as racist, to declaring that she 's not a racist. We’re so sorry they were swept up in all of this and we give thanks for their remarkable talents, wish them well, and hope to find

A source close to the disgraced comic—who, a source says, is “hunkered down” with her parents in Utah—tells Page Six: “Roseanne feels so bad about her antics she is trying to figure out a way to help people harmed by the cancellation. She’s considering giving up financial and creative participation in a spinoff so the people she loves can have jobs. Barr holding on is a stumbling block.”

This week she finally apologized for accusing George Soros of being a Nazi collaborator in an unhinged and racist tweetstorm which she has sought to blame on her use of the sleep medication Ambien. In fact, the financier was imprisoned by the Nazis and many of his family were killed in the Holocaust.

Speculation abounds about which character would be at the center of the spinoff, but insiders told Page Six, “The smart money is on Darlene and her family.”

ABC orders 'Roseanne' spinoff for fall minus Roseanne Barr

  ABC orders 'Roseanne' spinoff for fall minus Roseanne Barr ABC, which <g class="gr_ gr_7 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="7" id="7">canceled</g> its "Roseanne" revival over its star's racist tweet, says it will air a Conner family sitcom minus Roseanne Barr this fall. ABC ordered 10 episodes of the spinoff after Barr agreed to forgo any creative or financial participation in it.In a statement issued by the show's producer, Barr says she agreed to the settlement in order to save the jobs of 200 cast and crew members.

Because of that, she understands ABC’s efforts to try to revamp the show, though the spinoff may have a tough hurdle to climb since Roseanne Barr ’s ownership of the original could cause a problem, as reported previously by Inquisitr. “It’s a real shame for all, everyone, all the cast and crew .

She also apologized to Valerie Jarrett, and her now-canceled sitcom's cast , crew , and 'liberal' writers. Roseanne Barr says fans shouldn't 'defend' her racist tweet: 'I was ambien tweeting'. 'Sex and the City' producer reveals the 'horrifying' scene they had to cut .

Barr was fired in May after tweeting a series of offensive and racist remarks, including one that said, of former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=[Jarrett].”

The new series was pulled and reruns of the show's massive back catalog have also been pulled from cable.

Last week, Barr tweeted, “I’m making restitution for the pain I have caused,” however she then cast doubt on the sincerity of her attempts to do that by retweeting a message from a fan who replied to her saying, “You didn't cause any pain. Those people always hated you. Valerie Jarrett wants Israelis and Jews chased into the sea, and she'll celebrate.”

The move was reminiscent of her first 'apology' which was accompanied by more racist opinions.

So, it's perhaps easy to understand why showrunner Whitney Cummings has decided it's best not to have her as an executive producer, then.

Roseanne probably won't make money from a spin-off .
Here's why it's lose/lose for the controversial star.Barr's jibe at Jarrett was just the latest in a string of controversial messages that the 65-year-old actress, comedian, writer and producer had posted on social media. But it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Network president Channing Dungey branded Barr's tweet "abhorrent" and repugnant" and immediately dropped the axe on her series, rolling back a previous order for more episodes.
