  • Roseanne Barr says her 'Conners' character gets killed off by opioid overdose

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

Barr told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show "Walk Away", that the writers of the ABC spinoff "The Conners" elected to have her character die by overdosing on opioids. Well after the tweet, ABC confirmed that Roseanne was not going to return to the show, and they were going to retitle it "The Connors", named after their last name in the show. Those that watched the reboot will note that Roseanne began abusing opioids near the end of the season due to an injury, while Dan sought to get her help by trying to raise money for surgery.

A pill addiction storyline for the Roseanne character had started the previous season was apparently Barr's idea, but she obviously was not expecting it to result in the character's death for this new program.

Barr then added she was pretty unhappy with how the writers seemingly made a decision to take her out of the show.


Roseanne was on Brandon Straka's "Walk Away" on Monday when she revealed this big spoiler. I've been in show business 30 something years.

Barr called the decision "cynical and awful". "They had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show ..." She should've died as a hero or not at all ...'

The Conners stars John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey. You can find out what really happens when The Conners premieres on October 16.
