The 66-year-old actor revealed that it was “really odd” doing a Roseanne spin-off without the show’s creator and star. “We used to have a lot of fun on the show, and I really missed her this year,” John expressed.
“She gave up a lot so that we could do the show,” John continued. “She gave up all her rights to it so we didn’t have to call ourselves the ‘Monners’ or the ‘Chonners’ and invent new characters. But yeah, she will always be missed.”
“That’s pretty permanent,” John added about Roseanne‘s fate. “I mean, when I died on the show they just brought me back. They’re not going to remember, nobody was watching toward the end.”
