Love it or hate it so, so much, the Roseanne reboot got a second season.
After a massive ratings premiere on Tuesday, ABC announced Friday that they would be renewing the controversial sitcom for its second season.
The internet was torn up, for better or worse.
Though critics had been talking about the show for weeks, the show’s ratings shocked even the most hardened skeptics. On Tuesday night, a staggering 18.2 million viewers tuned in. The total viewercast has grown by over 3.4 million in recent days.
The announcement comes on the heels of news that President Trump called Roseanne, a Trump supporter, himself to congratulate her on the show’s ratings success.
The show’s renewal contract allegedly calls for up to 13 episodes. Just nine episodes were scheduled for the original season.
Roseanne hasn’t exactly received universal praise. While the show has been by some praised for shedding light on how divided families and friends deal with modern issues, critics have lambasted the actress for spreading hateful right-wing propaganda online, including the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. Roseanne has also accused Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg of performing a Nazi Salute (he has not).
Roseanne Barr should do ep about the lies & cruelty she & Trump represent. Ice Agents pulling pregnant moms from kids, appalling treatment of Transgenders, not just disagree with Hillary she’s: Pedophile, Murderer, Obama: Kenyan, Muslim, Parkland Kids: Nazi’s. Nazi’s: Fine people

Roseanne is being praised for representing both sides on a network that didn’t air Black-ish’s episode on NFL players kneeling
