“Barr faced severe fallout after a racist tweet she posted in May, attacking former President Barack Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett. In the post, which has since been deleted, the comedian referred to Jarrett as the offspring of the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.” Barr issued an apology, but it was too little, too late. She was removed from the Roseanne reboot, and the show was abruptly canceled.

Last week, ABC revealed that The Conners, a spinoff starring original cast members John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman, would air in the fall.

The 10-episode Conner family spinoff will air this fall. In a statement issued by the show’s producer, Barr said she agreed to the settlement to save the jobs of 200 cast and crew members. She will have no financial or creative involvement in the new show.”
