Roseanne Killed Off on 'The Conners' Premiere - Here's How

Roseanne Killed Off on 'The Conners' Premiere - Here's How

The premiere episode of The Conners aired on Tuesday night (October 16) and Roseanne Barr‘s character’s death was revealed.

The episode began three weeks after Roseanne’s death. While the Conner family thought she died from a heart attack, the coroner’s office reveals she died from an opioid overdose.

During the season finale of Roseanne that aired in May, it seemed that Roseanne’s addiction to painkillers because of a knee injury had been resolved. That changed after real-life Roseanne made a racist tweet that led to her being fired.

Roseanne previously revealed that she was going to be killed off via a drug overdose and she felt the move was “cruel.”

“It wasn’t enough to do what they did to me,” she said in an interview last month. “They had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show.”

    I personally believe they will do the same thing they did with Dan and have her death and the majority of the season or series as part of Darlene’s book since like Roseanne, she also had dreams of being a writer and have it revealed that Roseanne is actually alive. Cause remember how they had Dan survive his heart attack but then Roseanne revealed at the end of season 9 that he died from the heart attack but then in the season 10 premiere, his death was just a plotline in the character Roseanne’s book? I think they will do the same with Roseanne’s death.

    Side note, I’m not trying to defend Roseanne cause although firing her may have been harsh, she needs to understand that her actions often have consequences and she needs to learn how to control what she says. I think the most that should’ve happened was that twitter should’ve deleted her account and she just needs to stay off social media.
