Roseanne Barr furious over character’s death
ROSEANNE Barr has revealed how the Roseanne spin-off show, The Conners, will be getting rid of her character: death by opioid overdose.
Barr appeared on Brandon Straka's YouTube show, Walk Away, over the weekend and announced that her namesake character wasn't written off gently, the New York Post reports.
"Oh ya, they killed her," she said, adding, "They have her die of an opioid overdose."
Barr slammed ABC for giving her character that ending and said it insulted the fans "who loved that family in that show".
Despite her issues, she's resigned herself to her character's end.
"There's nothing I can do about it," she acknowledged. "It's done. It's over."
Roseanne co-star John Goodman previously revealed that Barr's character would be killed off but didn't say how she would die.
"I guess [my character will] be mopey and sad because his wife's dead," he said.
