at .

Roseanne Barr is returning to TV screens later this week, less than two months after her ABC show was canceled following a racist tweet. 

The former Roseanne star will open up in an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday, and it marks her first TV interview since her career imploded because of the tweet which found her comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

It will air on Fox News, Thursday at 9/8c, and it sure sounds like Roseanne has a whole lot to say because she the interview will also spill over into Friday's show which will air at the same time. 

Fox News has confirmed that Thursday's interview ill unspool live, but what will she be talking about?

“During the live interview, [Barr] will react to reports about the tweet that got her fired along with discussion of President Donald Trump,” according to a statement from Fox News.

Barr has long been a supporter of Trump, so it makes sense that she would use the appearance to chat about him.

However, the most popular questions will probably surround the cancellation of Roseanne, which was the number one show on television at the time ABC pulled the plug. 

News of the interview comes less than a week after Barr uploaded a video to her own Youtube channel in which she looked agitated, and opened up about her thoughts on Valerie Jarrett.

ABC made the decision to go ahead with a spin-off titled The Conners, and it will focus on the family in a Roseanne-less world.

There has been a mixed reaction from fans ever since the spin-off was given the green light, but with ABC severing ties with Barr, there was no chance the show could go on with her in any capacity. 

ABC confirmed just yesterday that The Conners will bow October 16th alongside a revamped Wednesday night line-up.
