The now-cancelled second season was expected to attract an estimated $60 million (£45 million) in advertising revenue.
Roseanne Barr's former co-stars reportedly had a feeling that something may jeopardize their show before the shocking cancellation news dropped earlier this week. Gilbert, 43, was one of the key people involved in bringing Roseanne back to the screen. The network pulled the plug on the sitcom after Roseanne Barr tweeted weird rants and racist comments about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.
On Friday, Roseanne Barr ditched a planned interview with Joe Rogan where she had claimed she would speak out about her controversial racist comments about Valerie Jarrett. "I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends", she wrote on Twitter.More news: Police pull abortion pill robots from Belfast streets

Barr tweeted Thursday that she begged ABC to keep the show, according to Fox News. While he said that Barr would "always" be his friend, he joked that one of her "multiple personalities" was a "racist".
Barr, who frequently tweets out disproven information and peddles conspiracy theories, has even found herself the subject of conspiracy theories about Roseanne getting picked up by Fox. "But she is getting so much crap from everyone about her comments on Twitter because the show was allegedly her idea to begin with". "Her excuse for tweeting it was bad".
Rogan said Barr also told him that she didn't know Jarrett was black. "We have a responsibility to vote in 2018", adding "Who we lift up to represent us speaks volumes about whether we treat each other with compassion and civility - and it's time to demand better".
