Default Lecy Goranson leaving the show

Has anybody ever heard why during Roseanne's run Lecy Goranson who played Becky left the show and was replaced by Sarah Chalke? Only for Sarah Chalke to be replaced by Lecy Goranson when she later returned? I've never heard why that happened and I'm just curious about it, thanks.

Sarah Chalke of course would later become better known as Elliott on the long running sitcom Scrubs.

Ed.

Yes she did want to go to college, but unlike Gilbert. Lecy's scheduled was not as open as Gilbert's. So she decided to leave the show at the time. I personally wish they would have written her character off instead of recasting her. She could have came on and do at least one episode a season.

Yeah, Lecy left the series in season five to go to college, and when Sara Gilbert left as well, they realized that they needed to fill the void with Sara only appearing part-time and with Lecy gone period, so they hired Sarah Chalke to replace her. The eighth season of Roseanne was originally going to be the final season, so because of that, Lecy got her schedule re-arranged so that she could come back part-time to do that season, but when the show was renewed for season nine, Lecy couldn't get her schedule to open up, so that's why she left the series permanently after season eight.

I heard a rumour that Lecy was been sexually harassed by a crew member, that's why she left. No wait it was Chalke.

I remember hearing a rumor about Lecy having an affair with a 30-something year old crew member but I never heard about Sarah Chalke being sexually harassed. She never left the show. When Lecy returned in season eight, Sarah Chalke occasionally substituted for her in season eight whenever Lecy was unavailable and Sarah Chalke returned in season nine permanently, so I think that's just a rumor.

I think that if a 30 somehing year old was to even entertain the idea of trying to mess with one of Rosanne's girls, she would have ripped his you know what off! They may not have been her real kids, but I'm willing to bet they became like daughters to her.

Mark Rosewater who worked on the show in season 4 said that Lecy wanted to go to College and Roseanne was not happy about it. Lecy said she would be okay to do a small amount of episodes per season (schedule permitted) but Roseanne basically gave her an ultimatum, all in or all out. Lecy chose all out.

Lecy recounted this same story to Huffington Post in 2013, but didn't use Roseanne's name, instead saying "the producers" well Roseanne was a producer as was Tom Arnold at the time.

I do wonder if Roseanne realized her mistake (and I wonder how much Tom influenced her decision at the time) and that is why she bent over backwards to accommodate Sara when she left for Yale. Sara had actually differed a year, as she was ready to go to College in season 5 as well.

Apparently they even built sets in New York during season 6 so Sara could film the show, Sarah Chalke confirmed this on The Talk, and stated she remembers flying to NYC to tape episodes. Sara also confirmed this on Huffington Post and stated it only happened for one season (season 6) then she would fly to LA to tape.

Since Becky never appeared in Chicago (where Darlene went to school), I assume they must have built a replica of the house and or diner in NYC as Becky only appeared in scenes involving the house during season 6.

The reason Lecy returned for season 8 was partially for the money and partially because it was supposed to be the last season of the show. In April 1995 right up to Jul 1995 Roseanne had announced she was ending the show, and had already written the final episode. The cast returned to work on season 8 a month early (in July) and taped 4 episodes before going on hiatus while Roseanne had her baby. Before the season ended, Roseanne decided to do one more year.

Sarah replaced Lecy for three episodes in Season 8 as Lecy had college work and refused to go to Disneyworld instead of getting assignments completed (she herself stated this on Huffington Post Live) Once again Lecy chose school over the show and left again when they couldn't accommodate her schedule.

I actually just rewatched a Howard Stern interview with Roseanne back when this happened in 1994 and they talked about that...Robin says "What happened with the older sister and the affair with the producer" Roseanne says "Oh I didnt know that story was out, how did you find out about that" So there might be truth to it
