A year later, the decision to keep going made sense. But star and executive producer Sara Gilbert admits she and the rest of the show’s cast and producers weren’t so sure it was a good idea at first, after those shocking turn of events.

“We were all scared,” Gilbert told Variety‘s “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “It was definitely a risk to come back. And we didn’t know how it was going to go. We didn’t know how the reviews were going to go.”

Then came the positive reviews for the first episode, which revealed the death of Roseanne Conner. From there, the show moved on. “We just thought, ‘wow,’ we pulled it off somehow. … It wasn’t an easy decision to make on any level. I think a lot of the cast had a little tug of war in their mind.”

During a conversation on Varietys My Favorite Episode podcast, Gilbert opened up about the difficult decision, saying that something had to give.
