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

The working-class sitcom stars the same cast as last season's highest-rated show - John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, etc. - with one major exception: Roseanne Barr, who was sacked by ABC over "abhorrent" comments she made on Twitter.

"Oh ya, they killed her", said Barr, who previously said she planned on fleeing to Israel when "The Connors" premieres.

An overdose definitely makes sense as an end for the character; Roseanne was revealed to be hooked on opioids during Season 10.

"Well, I want to be able to learn Hebrew, speak Hebrew fluently", she said. "It's done. It's over". She was sacked from her rebooted show Roseanne and condemned by her castmates.

Fans of Roseanne Barr, who are not thrilled about the new show, have taken to commenting on the post and letting their disapproval be heard.

Later in the event, Trump and Duda took questions from the audience. "I think it's a very aggressive situation", Trump said . The push by Poland comes amid historic rival Russia's increased military activity.

Goodman also defended his Roseanne co-star and said he knows for a fact that Barr is not a racist. Barr will retain rights to the Roseanne Conner character. At the time, Barr had called it "Ambien tweeting". But Barr says, "I was never going to have Roseanne die of an opioid overdose". She should have died as a hero or not at all ...

Barr was sacked and ABC cancelled the hit series in May after posting a racist tweet.

The show will star John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman-basically, everyone but Roseanne Barr.

Despite her stated intent for the tweet to be purely political, Barr was criticized for being racist. It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me. It's done, it's over, there's no fight left.

"The Conners" will premiere on ABC on October 16.
