The cast of The Conners pose together on the red carpet as they arrive at the PaleyFest Presents The Conners event on Tuesday (October 16) at the Paley Center for Media in New York City.

Co-stars John Goodman, Lecy Goranson, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Maya Lynne Robinson stepped out for the event to promote their upcoming Roseanne spinoff series ahead of its premiere later that night.

During the event, the cast opened up about why they continued to do the spinoff after the Roseanne reboot was canceled after star Roseanne Barr‘s offensive tweets.

“We weren’t done,” Sara said. “We had more stories to tell. We wanted to give that to our audience and not end things so abruptly.”

If you missed it, during the premiere, the show revealed how Roseanne‘s character was killed off the show.

New episodes of The Conners air on Tuesday nights on ABC at 8pm ET.

Roseanne Barr Reacts to 'The Conners' Spinoff Killing Her Off

Roseanne Barr is reacting to the death of her character revealed during The Conners premiere on Tuesday night (October 16).

After it was revealed during the show that matriarch Roseanne had died of an opioid overdose, the 65-year-old disgraced actress took to Twitter to acknowledge her character’s death.

“I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!” Roseanne tweeted during the show.

Back in September, Roseanne said that the show would be killing her off, but ABC never commented on the show.

“It wasn’t enough to do what they did to me,” Roseanne said at the time. “They had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show.”

Roseanne was fired from her show’s reboot back in May after she made a racist comment about President Obama‘s former adviser Valerie Jarrett.

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.”
