Comedian Roseanne Barr will be tackling President Donald Trump when her popular sitcom is revived next season on ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I don't know whether Roseanne (Barr) will speak about (President Donald) Trump by name. But she's going to speak very honestly," said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said.

"We're going to be tackling some of the topics that are in the conversation today. I'll leave it that."

The Hill noted Barr will star in an eight-episode reboot of her sitcom which had ended in 1997.

Barr ran for president in 2016 as a candidate for the Peace and Freedom Party. Last year, she noted, according to The Hill, the U.S. would be "so lucky if Trump won." And she added…"because then it wouldn't be Hillary (Clinton)."

Dungey said the show was coming back at the perfect time.

"Thirty years ago, Roseanne was speaking very openly about her life and her challenges," she said. "And it's a perfect time to have that voice back to talk about the realities now."
