Roseanne Barr will sit down with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night, marking the comedian’s first TV interview since her ABC series “Roseanne” was canceled over an offensive tweet.

The interview will be aired live July 26 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on “Hannity,” and will cover the circumstances of Barr’s firing, as well as Donald Trump, according to a Fox News statement. Additional portions of the interview will also be presented on Friday.

Hannity made the announcement at the end of his Tuesday episode.

Whether the interview will actually happen is another story. Barr previously said on July 8 that she had locked down her first post-firing TV interview for that week, only to backtrack the next day, telling followers “after a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans.”

Barr was fired and her ABC sitcom “Roseanne” canceled in May, after she tweeted “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” about former President Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. That same morning, Barr also accused Democratic donor George Soros, a holocaust survivor, of complicity in the Holocaust.

She later apologized for both remarks, though on July 20 she defended her comments about Jarrett, saying in a YouTube clip that “I thought the bitch was white.”
