The idea of creating a spinoff — possibly focusing on another family member — that would allow the team to carry on without Barr quickly surfaced. But many, including one of its showrunners, Whitney Cummings, balked at the idea that Barr would profit from the new version.
We’re told Barr is now open to cutting herself out of a spinoff entirely.
A source close to the disgraced comic — who says she is “hunkered down” with her parents in Utah — tells us, “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.”
