Roseanne Barr may soon be returning to TV.

The comedian says job offers have been pouring in since ABC fired her in May for a racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things,” Barr said on Sunday’s episode of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast. “I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see.”

It was Barr’s second appearance on the program since her ABC series was canceled.

During this latest interview, she focused on her Jewish faith and said she didn’t ask for any money when she signed away the rights to Roseanne, allowing ABC to proceed with a spinoff.

“I thought signing off of my own life’s work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance,” she said. “Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you knowing what you’ve done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them. I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I’ve lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews.”

On June 21, ABC announced it was moving forward with a spinoff without Barr, who co-created Roseanne. The new show is tentatively titled The Conners and will premiere in the fall.

The day of ABC’s announcement, Barr released a statement saying she had signed a “settlement” to give up any claims to the new series.

“I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved,” she said at the time.
