Unfortunately for those who were enjoying Roseanne Barr’s Lifetime reality show, it looks like Season 1 is the end of the line for the series. After low ratings, Lifetime has decided not to renew the series for a second season. But if you’re a Roseanne Barr fan, there may be good news on the horizon.
According to Deadline, Barr’s reality show on Lifetime, which followed her work on a Hawaiian macadamia nut plantation, was cancelled by the network, likely due to poor ratings. Barr announced the news via Twitter, thanking those who watched. Whether it be because there aren’t a lot of people who like Roseanne Barr, or because the subject of nut harvesting doesn’t interest them, the series started off with a 0.7 rating this summer and plummeted from there, dropping to a 0.3 demo, after which the network moved the series to Friday nights at ten o’clock for its final three episodes, the last of which aired last Friday.
If you’re disappointed by this news, there’s a good chance Barr will be back on television at some point. She currently has a script deal with 20th TV. The project doesn’t have a showrunner yet, but if it does, we could be seeing Roseanne Barr back on TV in a scripted series at some point.
