Roseanne Barr Says Her 'Roseanne' Character Will Be Killed by Opioid Overdose


Roseanne Barr has revealed how the "Roseanne" spinoff show, "The Conners", will be getting rid of her character: death by opioid overdose. And now, thanks to Roseanne herself, we know how the character is set to die - an opioid overdose.

ABC announced within weeks of the cancellation that "The Conners" - a new "Roseanne" spinoff series minus Barr - would premiere in the fall. "No", she said. "I've never done anything racist in my life".

"I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved", she said.

"They had her die of an opium-or a opioid overdose", Barr told YouTuber Brandon Straka about 40 minutes into the interview. She should have died as a hero or not at all ...

But Barr is resigned to her TV fate.

The Conners stars John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey. I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense-the person who's walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or walk across the street.

"I want to stay away from it", the actress remarked.

She also revealed she has "spies" in Hollywood who are watching out for her.

"The spin-off will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago", the network said in a statement. It's done, it's over, there's no fight left.
