If you remember back in June, Roseanne Barr was fired from her hit show Roseanne just hours after she posted a tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, comparing her to the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.” Well after the tweet, ABC confirmed that Roseanne was not going to return to the show, and they were going to retitle it “The Connors,” named after their last name in the show.
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. According to Roseanne herself, the show is going to kill her off by an apparent opioid overdose.
Roseanne was on Brandon Straka’s “Walk Away” on Monday when she revealed this gigantic spoiler. Barr tells Straka the pill addiction story line was her own from last season, and it appears the writers for The Conners decided to run with it.
Now it is quite possible that the writers for The Conners could change their minds on how to kill Roseanne, but she seemed pretty serious and pretty pissed about the whole thing altogether.
