Roseanne Barr might return to TV

Washington: After being ousted from her show 'Roseanne' following racist remarks against an Obama administration official, actress Roseanne Barr might make a second comeback to television this year.

Barr in a podcast interview with American Author Shmuley Boteach said that she almost accepted one offer to come to TV and might do it.

"I've already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we'll see," The Hollywood Reporter quoted Barr as saying.

The actresses' iconic sitcom 'Roseanne' was revived with a bent favouring US President Donald Trump, which garnered favourable ratings.

The television broadcasting company ABC is currently working on a spin-off of 'Roseanne' titled 'The Conners' that will not feature Barr's character and will focus on the rest of the cast instead.

Further in the podcast interview Barr said that she never wanted the money when she signed away the rights to her show and particularly she never wanted African-American actress, Jayden Rey, to lose her job.

"I thought signing off of my own life's work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance. Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you, knowing what you've done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them. I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I've lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews," she added.

Earlier as fans were divided over the latest developments in the 'Roseanne' drama, the television broadcasting company ABC on June 21 announced it will bring back a 'Roseanne' spin-off - tentatively called 'The Conners' - sans its controversial lead, Roseanne Barr.
