A press release from Fox states that Barr will perform her “signature comedic take on a variety of topics, with no subject off limits.” This comes after the Roseanne series reboot was cancelled by ABC in 2018, due to Barr’s racist tweets about former President Barack Obama‘s adviser Valerie Jarrett.
