Spoiler Alert! Did Roseanne Reveal How “The Conners” Get Rid of Her?

The new who shot J.R.

One of the most anticipated shows this fall is the Roseanne spinoff The Connors if only just to see how the network gets rid of Roseanne Barr’s character.

We know she dies, according to John Goodman, but Barr may have spilled all the beans on a YouTube talk show about the cause of death.

“Oh ya, they killed her,” she said on Brandon Straka’s YouTube show Walk Away. “They have her die of an opioid overdose.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, the network has not responded to the claim, so Barr’s word isn’t bond. But the fallen star does point out the show did intend on tackling addiction, so maybe?

“I wanted to show that in the show,” said Barr. “But I was never going to have Roseanne die of an opioid overdose. It’s so cynical and horrible. She should have died as a hero or not at all.

Find out how Roseanne dies when The Conners debuts on October 16.
