While Roseanne Conner’s (Roseanne Barr) support for Trump was a central storyline in the first episode of the March 27 premiere, the second episode quickly moved away from the political theme many viewers assumed would be a constant thread throughout the entire revival season.
In fact, Trump’s name won’t even be mentioned in any of the nine total episodes.
“The Conners aren’t Trump supporters. Roseanne’s character is a Trump supporter — she’s the only one — and we never say his name, actually, in the show,” series star Sara Gilbert, who also serves as an executive producer on the reboot, said Thursday on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. (The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Gilbert’s comment applies to all the remaining episodes, as well.)
