Her show was cancelled by ABC following her comments directed at a former advisor to Barack Obama.

The Roseanne actress was fired - and the show cancelled - after she posted a racist tweet, but she has claimed she is actually open to a TV comeback.

Speaking to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in a podcast, she said: "Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I've already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we'll see."

Meanwhile, ABC recently confirmed a spin-off series without the involvement of the 65-year-old star.

The synopsis read: "After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family - Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. - grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, ageing and in-laws in working-class America.

"Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns - with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails."

The announcement for the new show stressed that Roseanne will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series.

A statement from Roseanne and executive producer Tom Werner added: "Tom Werner and Roseanne Barr have reached an agreement that will allow Werner Entertainment to produce a spin-off of the Roseanne series for ABC without Barr's further creative or financial participation."
