Roseanne Barr is "seriously considering" forgoing any profits from a spinoff of her canceled sitcom, Page Six reported Wednesday.

The "Roseanne" revival's debut episode was such a success that ABC renewed the show for another season. But all of that was cut short by a controversial tweet from Barr that caused the show to be canceled immediately.

After the network dropped the show from its lineup, Barr begged ABC to try to find a way to save it.

When someone suggested a “Roseanne” spinoff that focused on another character, co-showrunner Whitney Cummings, who was leaving before the next season, resisted the idea out of fear that Barr would profit from the venture.

The New York Post's Page Six learned Barr is open to cutting herself out of the equation in order to help her former colleagues.

“Roseanne feels so bad about her antics she is trying to figure out a way to help people harmed by the cancellation,” a source told Page Six. “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.”

The source told the paper Barr is presently “hunkered down” in Utah with her parents.

Media insiders told Page Six that if a spinoff becomes a reality, “The smart money is on Darlene [Conner] and her family” as the new central character.

While this may push producers closer to committing to a spinoff of the popular series, “Roseanne” fans are saying they shouldn’t bother — without Barr in the cast no one will watch it anyway.

 

A few folks advised Barr that she shouldn’t forgo any profits coming to her.
