AceShowbiz - Roseanne Barr won't let the cancellation of "Roseanne" reboot stops her. The 65-year-old actress takes to her Twitter account to announce that she's going to have her first TV interview following her dismissal from "Roseanne" over racist tweets.

"To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week," she wrote on the micro-blogging site on Sunday evening, July 8. "I'll tell u about it tomorrow!"

It's unknown which TV appearance she's talking about. The actress was recently on Rabbi Shumley Boteach's podcast. She talked about the controversial tweets about Valerie Jarrett, adding that "inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen."

She continued, "I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things." She added, "I've almost accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we'll see."

Roseanne appeared to be in good spirits as she later followed it up with a selfie of her sporting a new blonde hair. "New hair!" she captioned the photo which featured her smiling ear to ear.

After the cancellation of "Roseanne", ABC ordered a spin-off titled "The Conners" that won't feature the actress. The new series is set to run for 10 episodes and star other "Roseanne" cast members including John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky) and Michael Fishman (D.J.).

The official logline of "The Conners" read, "After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family -- Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. -- grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns -- with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails."

The filming will soon start as "The Conners" eyes a 2018 fall premiere.
