ABC's Roseanne, which was famously canceled by the network earlier this year following a racist tweet from series star Roseanne Barr, earned a pair of Emmy nominations on Thursday morning, including one for Laurie Metcalf in the supporting actress in a comedy series category.

Metcalf previously won three consecutive Emmys for her role as Jackie Harris when Roseanne aired during the mid-'90s. She will next reprise the role in Roseanne spinoff The Connors (a working title), which is set to debut in the fall.

Also on Thursday, the Television Academy gave Roseanne editor Brian Schnuckel a picture editing nomination for the "Darlene v. David" episode. Schnuckel has one previous Emmy nomination, for 2000's Here's to You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years.

Roseanne was among a handful of shows that scored Emmy nominations Thursday morning following the end of a series run, including The Americans and Orphan Black.
