According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Roseanne” is reportedly making good progress without the show’s star Roseanne Barr.

The network is close to securing a deal to bring back the recently rebooted and cancelled show, which will most likely be renamed. The show was cancelled after comedian, Roseanne made comments against former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, calling her the baby of the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.”

Barr has “tentatively agreed” to waive any financial and creative rights to the spinoff. Though she would be cut out of the spinoff, she would still retain her financial stake of the previously produced 10 seasons of the original show.

The rumored second take would focus on Darlene (Sara Gilbert), who served as an executive producer on the most recent season. John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie) and the rest of the cast are expected to return as well, along with the crew.
