John Goodman on Doing 'The Conners' Without Roseanne Barr: 'She Is Missed'

John Goodman stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (October 9) and opened up about moving forward with ABC spinoff The Conners after Roseanne was fired from her own reboot after sending out a racist tweet months ago.

“She is missed, definitely,” the 66-year-old actor told Jimmy. “After that many years, it’s like a family. Last year was so miraculous and so unreal that when it went away it was almost like a dream. I thought, ‘Okay, I’ll be a big boy and handle this,’ and I just crashed for a couple of weeks.”

“Last year was so miraculous and so unreal that when it went away it was almost like a dream,” John continued. “She gave up a lot for us to be able to do this show and I can’t thank her enough.”

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

John Goodman Says He Was Depressed After 'Roseanne' Cancellation

John Goodman is giving his first extensive interview after the cancellation of Roseanne due to the star Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet.

“I was broken-hearted, but I thought, ‘OK, it’s just show business, I’m going to let it go. But I went through a period, about a month, where I was very depressed. I’m a depressive anyway, so any excuse that I can get to lower myself, I will. But that had a great deal to do with it, more than I wanted to admit,” John told The Times.

John added about the huge reaction to the racist tweet, “I was surprised. I’ll put it this way, I was surprised at the response. And that’s probably all I should say about it. I know, I know, for a fact that she’s not a racist.”

About the new reboot, The Conners, Roseanne signed over all her rights.

“She had to sign a paper saying that she relinquished all her rights to the show so that we could go on. I sent her an email and thanked her for that,” he said. “I did not hear anything back, but she was going through hell at the time. And she’s still going through hell.”
