Roseanne Barr claims her character will die of an overdose

"Oh ya, they killed her", Barr said on a YouTube Show over the weekend "They have her die of an opioid overdose."I wanted to show [opioid struggle] in the show", she said".

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

Despite her issues, she's resigned herself to her character's end. "It's done. It's over".

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.

And while Barr has previously stated she wouldn't "curse" the spinoff, she didn't hold back on her feelings behind ABC's decision to cancel Roseanne and move ahead with The Conners.

Barr, 65, admitted she has accepted her fate and the fact that the show is moving on without her.

Last season, on the Roseanne revival, Roseanne's character was shown to be hoarding pain pills in lieu of having expensive knee surgery.

Korean leaders meet in Pyongyang for potentially tough talks
Moon is also tasked with a hard mission to revive the stalled nuclear talks between Washington and Pyongyang. About 150 business, entertainment and sports leaders streamed onto the aircraft before it departed.

That's a pretty big reveal given the network has barely shown more than a snippet of a commercial teasing about what would come next for the cast in the new series.

Despite her stated intent for the tweet to be purely political, Barr was criticized for being racist.

Roseanne said she did not know the race of former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, and so didn't aim the tweet at her race, but at her politics.

She added that when she hit send on Twitter, "I just thought, 'Oh boy, this [tweet] is a good one".

"You know I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel", said Che. She has apologised several times for what she called a "joke", but the angry outcry over her tweet led to her being fired and then killed off in the spin-off series. "Don't think I don't have spies".

'The Conners' will premiere in the USA on 16 October on ABC.
