Sure enough, “Roseanne” co-stars like John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert were all interested in keeping the show going in some fashion.
In a joint statement on Thursday, the remaining cast members said, “We have received a tremendous amount of support from fans of our show, and it’s clear that these characters not only have a place in our hearts, but in the hearts and homes of our audience.”
Now they’ll be back at work soon. ABC ordered ten episodes of the new show.
The network said it’ll occupy the same time slot, Tuesdays at 8 p.m., that “Roseanne” would have had in the fall.
