Roseanne Barr Reveals How 'The Conners' Will Kill Off Her Character

Roseanne Barr reveals how her character Roseanne’s absence will be addressed on the upcoming ABC spinoff, The Conners.

If you don’t know, Roseanne was fired from her own reboot after sending out a racist tweet months ago.

Roseanne made an appearance on Brandon Straka‘s YouTube show “Walk Away,” and she revealed (SPOILERS AHEAD) that her character will be killed off.

“Oh ya, they killed her. They have her die of an opioid overdose,” she said on the program.

“There’s nothing I can do about it,” Roseanne added of the writers’ decision. “It’s done. It’s over.”

The Conners will premiere on Tuesday (October 16) at 8/7c on ABC.

    Opioid overdose is perfect for the character. Conservative Americans often die by opioid overdose or are “accidentally” shot to death by a toddler who finds their loaded gun.

    Team Roseanne. The woman is flawed, and who among us isn’t, and I don’t believe for a second she is a racist. Will not watch The Connors.

    Sara Gilbert can go fuck herself. Without Roseanne,she’d be nothing.

    i won’t watch, i don’t condone what she said but i think she made a horrible decision to give up her life’s work. she should have waited a few more weeks to make a level-headed decision. she is/was that show and 100% its creator. i guess people don’t realize that if they watch the connors they are essentially still supporting roseanne b/c she created every one of those characters

    You can kill off the character and fire her from the show, but you can’t remove Roseanne from its DNA. I think she deserved to get fired (though I think the YEARS of dangerous, hateful tweets leading up to this this make it hard for the network to justify hiring her/reviving the show in the first place) but they should’ve let the show go with her. It’s hers, for better or worse.
