A tweaked Roseanne revival is being considered at ABC starring Sara Gilbert.: Roseanne probably won't make money from a spin-off © ABC Roseanne probably won't make money from a spin-off Last week, ABC took the dramatic decision to cancel its hit revival of the sitcom Roseanne, following a racist 'joke' that star Roseanne Barr tweeted about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett.

Barr's jibe at Jarrett was just the latest in a string of controversial messages that the 65-year-old actress, comedian, writer and producer had posted on social media. But it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Network president Channing Dungey branded Barr's tweet "abhorrent" and repugnant" and immediately dropped the axe on her series, rolling back a previous order for more episodes.

Regardless of how you feel about the decision to axe Roseanne, it was unquestionably a bold move from ABC, which stood to lose a lot of money by dropping the show. The revival had performed better than anyone could have hoped in the ratings, ranking as the highest-rated TV show of the season (even fending off the likes of The Big Bang Theory and This Is Us).

So it wasn't a huge surprise when news broke that the network was considering different options for how it might hold on to Roseanne's audience while still sticking to its guns and removing Barr from its schedules.

Recent reports have it that a deal is nearing completion to bring back the entire Roseanne cast – minus the show's lead – for a new spin-off, with the most popular idea being to centre the new series about Sara Gilbert's character Darlene. (Gilbert has been described as "one of the driving forces" behind the Roseanne revival and served as an executive producer on the project.)

But the news that ABC was looking to have its cake and eat it too caused some concern among those affronted by Barr's actions: would she not still end up profiting from any potential spin-off series?

It is, unquestionably, a complicated situation. But it's in no way guaranteed that Barr will make money off of Darlene, or whatever new concept Gilbert and her fellow executive producers Bruce Helford and Tom Werner dream up.

Barr was also executive producer on the revival and so is due "back-end payments" for Roseanne: these include profits from foreign sales, DVD sales, video-on-demand sales and sales from other ancillary markets.

'Roseanne' stars could get a spin-off show, but there's a catch

  'Roseanne' stars could get a spin-off show, but there's a catch It's not as easy as it soundsOn Tuesday, the family sitcom was abruptly cancelled by US network ABC after its star and creator, Roseanne Barr, posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former administration advisor to Barack Obama.

Here's why Roseanne Barr probably won ' t make any money from a Roseanne spin - off . Roseanne spin - off The Conners could kill off Roseanne Barr's character, says John Goodman.

Roseanne was created by Matt Williams, based on a character created by Roseanne Barr. The fact that the follow-up series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne It won ’ t last, be cancelled with in a week, seam to remember did this once before, Valarie Harper, Valarie’s Family, replaced her with

In a broadly similar situation, Warner Bros TV fired Charlie Sheen from Two and a Half Men in 2011 (citing, brilliantly, "moral turpitude") but ended up facing a $100 million lawsuit filed by the actor. Though Sheen eventually settled for less, he still walked away with an extra $25 million in the bank, all to cover bank-end payments he was due.

a group of people sitting at a table: Two and a Half Men © CBS Two and a Half Men The difference is, if the Roseanne spin-off were pitched as a new series, this would, as Deadline reports, weaken any demands from Barr that she be compensated for back-end payments. 

CBS opted to press on with the Two and a Half Men brand in Sheen's absence, but whatever the new ABC show might be, it won't be Roseanne, so the same rules do not apply to her as they did to him.

But what about her rights as creator of the characters who'll continue to feature in the spin-off – husband Dan (John Goodman), Darlene and the rest of the family?

Roseanne Barr et al. sitting on a couch: Roseanne revival © ABC Roseanne revival The catch there is, Roseanne wasn't actually created by Roseanne Barr. (Pause for dramatic gasp.) The show has always been been billed as having been devised solely by television producer Matt Williams. Williams actually departed the original series after just 13 episodes – he and Barr reportedly had conflicting creative visions for the sitcom, with him seeing it as an "ensemble piece" rather than a star vehicle – but that doesn't change the bottom line.

Though Barr gets credit for devising the "Roseanne Connor" character she played on the series, all other aspects, including the characters who would feature in a spin-off, are officially credited to Williams.

Again, this would weaken any claims that she's due financial restitution. So while it's entirely possible that Barr might challenge the decision to expand the Roseanne-verse without her involvement, she'd actually be on a pretty weak footing to do so. It was never hers to begin with.

The hard truth, though, is that with a reported net worth of $80 million, we can't imagine she'll miss the extra cash all that much.
