Roseanne Barr Reveals How Her 'Conners' Character Will Be Killed Off

She won't be creatively or financially involved with the Lanford-set spinoff, and when Goodman was asked how the show will explain his on-screen wife's absence, he replied, "It's an unknown".

John Goodman, who played Roseanne's husband on the show, previously had implied Barr's character would be killed off. Barr will retain rights to the Roseanne Conner character.

Despite its success, the sitcom was canceled after its star posted a series of racist and otherwise insensitive tweets criticizing former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, billionaire George Soros and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton. "I want to stay away from it", Barr reportedly told talk show host Dr. Oz.

On her character dying via opioid overdose: "I'm not 100% sure, but my spies there, they said that".

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 200,000 people died in the US from prescription opioid overdoses between 1999 and 2016.


"It's done. It's over", she said. Straka said during his show "Walk Away". "And also I have quite a few teachers over the years that live there and, you know, I want to study". "I did what I had to do to save my own life and I did it".

ABC has greenlit The Conners, a 10-episode spinoff that will feature the same family (minus, of course, Barr) and premiere in the fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I think a lot of people have too".

"It wasn't enough to just do what [ABC] did to me".

Barr slammed ABC for giving her character that ending and said it insulted the fans "who loved that family in that show".

The Conners premieres Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
