Roseanne: My character gets killed off 'The Conners' by opioid overdose

Roseanne: My character gets killed off 'The Conners' by opioid overdose

Roseanne Barr finally shared what happens to her character on her eponymous show when its spinoff, The Conners, arrives next month.

Barr was sacked by the network in May and her hit show "Roseanne" abruptly canceled after she posted a racist tweet on Twitter in which she said Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama, looks as if the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby".

'Oh ya, they killed her.

The news of Roseanne's firing came after the first season had aired, so how she was going to be killed off has remained a mystery to fans of the show, until now that is.

In the meantime, we'll have to wait until March 8, 2019, to see Captain Marvel's first appearance on the big screen. I really enjoyed this teaser, bring it.

Despite her issues, she's resigned herself to her character's end.

"I just have to be neutral and walk away", she said. "It's done. It's over".

To be fair, Barr may not be the most reliable source when it comes to this information, considering her unfriendly parting with ABC after the network fired her for posting racist tweets (never mind that she's been steadily building an alt-right following for the past decade). "They had to cruelly insult them, and that's what they chose to do. There's no fight left". She said she had knee surgery three years ago and "there was a bit of a fight for me to quit and get off" pain pills.

The Conners has a 10-episode order and stars John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky), and Michael Fishman (D.J.). We'll find out when The Conners premieres in October.
