Roseanne: My character gets killed off 'The Conners' by opioid overdose

Roseanne Barr revealed that the creators of "The Conners" will kill off her character with an overdose, which she said is a cruel insult to the show's fans.

Roseanne Barr revealed how her character will get killed off on the upcoming spinoff of "Roseanne" after she was sacked from the ABC series in May for writing a racist tweet. They have already worked out how to kill Roseanne's character off in the show and Barr said it will be due to an opioid overdose.

The comedienne revealed that her character does, in fact, die, leaving the rest of the Conner family to make do without their matriarch, Deadline reports. "It's done. It's over". It seemed like her addiction would be a running storyline in the next season, but now that Barr has been fired, it's apparently how they'll end Roseanne's life. "I didn't understand that she was an African-American woman", Barr told Dr. Oz.

"No", Roseanne added. "I don't want to be in that place ever again".

Back in May, Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.

Officials in Carteret County, North Carolina, announced on Saturday morning that two people had died on Harkers Island. The state DOT said on its website that the two roads are expected to re-open by Monday morning.

ABC had no comment on Barr's revelations when reached by TVLine. Some believed that Roseanne would die in surgery, but apparently her character will be lost to a supposed "opioid overdose". It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me.

"We are not gonna have you come on this show and have you defend yourself and have you plea for the American people to forgive you..."

However, the show will go on and as Barr's fate is left in the hands of the network and writers, the star previously said she will be moving to Israel to study when the show begins. "I think a lot of people have too".

"The Conners" premieres October 16 at 8 p.m. PT on ABC.
