ABC wants to move forward with a second reboot of “Roseanne” and we’re told an announcement could be imminent.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … network executives kicked negotiations into third gear when Tom Werner, who produced “Roseanne” through his company Carsey-Werner, got involved over the weekend in direct talks with top network brass. His involvement has all but sealed the deal.
Our sources say the network’s fine tuning last-minute details … particularly around Roseanne, who was not only the face of the show, but also served as an executive producer.
ABC has been exploring the possibility of rebranding the show and focus on Sara Gilbert’s character, Darlene. John Goodman is “very interested” … as is the rest of the cast and crew.
