Roseanne Barr is not happy with the fate that may await her character in the upcoming spin-off The Conners.
On a YouTube show Walk Away, Barr said Roseanne Conner will “die of an opioid overdose.”
The character having an opioid problem was set up on Roseanne last season, as she started taking pain pills after a knee injury. But Barr is not pleased with the direction she says The Conners will take.
“I wanted to show it in the show,” Barr said, referring to a possible addiction storyline. “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.”
US network ABC declined to comment. The Conners debuts in mid-October in the US.
