“On behalf of all the writers and producers, we worked incredibly hard to create an amazing show. I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is.”
As for what the now-defunct 11th season would have held, Helford previously said:
We’ll be exploring Roseanne’s relationship with DJ’s wife and in-laws, we’ll be showing more of what current life is like in Lanford and how that community has changed and how Jackie takes an active role in it as Lanford’s #1 life coach, we’ll be following Dan’s struggles to continue providing for his family, we’ll be watching Darlene and Becky as they take a deep breath and jump back into dating again, even as Darlene contends with raising her kids, we’ll be seeing more of David – it’s gonna be a busy year for the Conners.”
Meanwhile, ABC has not just cancelled Roseanne, the network has also suspended the show’s Emmys For Your Consideration campaign, per THR:
The alphabet network is suspending its FYC campaign on behalf of the show, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. The first visible evidence of this will come on Sunday, when talent from the show will not participate in a day-long event promoting talent from several ABC Entertainment/ABC Studios shows to TV Academy members on the Disney lot.
Additionally, Roseanne reruns have been pulled from Paramount Network, TV Land, CMT and Laff.
CTV, Roseanne‘s Canadian broadcaster, has also removed all episodes of the sitcom from its platforms:
