  • Bread and Butter No More? 'Roseanne' May Not Address Politics in Season 2

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said she doesn't expect the next season of Roseanne to focus on politics.

"I think that they are going to continue on the path they were on toward the latter part of this season, which is away from politics and more focused on family", Dungey said.

The show's creator and star, Roseanne Barr, is herself a vocal supporter of President TrumpDonald John TrumpAvenatti defends right to release Cohen's financial info Pruitt's 24/7 security requested over fears of Trump policy backlash Senate GOP anger over McCain insult grows MORE.

"As you know, we have always been supportive of Kenya and team tackling challenging and controversial issues in the show", Dungey said on a conference call with reporters announcing ABC's 2018-19 schedule. "There, now you're all caught up".

"Conversations with Kenya have been incredibly collaborative, and he and I have been in conversations recently about some potential new business", Dungey said.

The network executive said ABC tries to tell as many different stories as possible and Roseanne fits that mandate because it shows a struggling, Midwestern family, facing different challenges than the wealthier characters in some its sitcoms like black-ish and Modern Family.

"In a very amusing way, I think it allowed us, between the different, political views of Roseanne and Jackie, to address some issues that we think have been conversations at other family dining tables across the country".

Behind-the-scenes, there has been growing tension, which escalated after ABC's decision earlier this season to pull a politically charged episode of Black-ish and there has been speculation that Barris, who is under a multi-year deal at ABC Studios, is looking to end his pact early. The new season is set for 13 episodes, an increase from the nine episodes of the first season.

Finally, she said that "Roseanne" and its ratings success had little effect on ABC's plans for the fall, as the show premiered after the broadcaster had ordered all of their pilots.
