Roseanne Barr Revealed How Her Character In Spinoff Is Killed

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

Speaking to YouTuber, Brandon Straka this week, Barr said that her characters' absence will be addressed by killing off the family's matriarch via an opioid overdose. They have already worked out how to kill Roseanne's character off in the show and Barr said it will be due to an opioid overdose. Roseanne then said she had been taught by several teachers over the years who live in Israel and she wants to study with them.

Barr found her character's death to be disrespectful to those "who loved that family" in the original "Roseanne" show.

"I wanted to show [opioid struggle] in the show", Barr told Straka. "It's done. It's over". However, on Monday, Barr said she wasn't positive that was the plan.

ABC did not respond to Deadline's request for comment on Barr's revelation.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey fired Barr for her malicious tweets suggesting that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is an ape.

The reboot of the sitcom "Roseanne" was recently cancelled in mid-flight after Roseanne Barr made a racist remark on Twitter.

She is not involved in the writing or production of the new episodes, which casts further doubt on how she would know what the producers are planning to do with her character.

"I just have to be neutral and walk away", she said.

Barr later blamed it on her consumption of the sleeping drug Ambien. "Defending myself or being angry for being mischaracterized and, you know, I don't..." According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 people are dying every day in the U.S. by opioid overdose. Her husband also offers to get a prescription for his back, so she can have more.

ABC announced within weeks of the cancellation that "The Conners" - a new "Roseanne" spinoff series minus Barr - would premiere in the fall.
