Gilbert also shared that, despite lots of publicity about the shows politics, the show isn't about that, according to IndieWire.
“The show is not about politics. It’s not about anyone’s position or a policy, it’s really about what happens to a family when there’s a political divide, which is something that I think the entire country can relate to and something we need to talk about. So, with our show, it’s never about ‘doing an issue’ or ‘doing politics,’ it’s ‘how do these things affect a family unit?’”

The show will have at least another season to explore how the divide affects the family. "Roseanne" was renewed for another season March 30.
“Roseanne” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Watch Gilbert speak about the show and politics on “Watch What Happens Live” in the video below.
