ABC Debunks Roseanne Opioids Death on The Conners

According to Roseanne Barr, her character on “The Conners” will be killed off by an opioid overdose.

Barr feels that her characters death is an insult to fans of the show. It was also said that her recent appearance on Brandon Straka’s YouTube show “Walk Away,” spoiled how ABC will deal with her firing.

Barr revealed the fate of her character saying, “they have her die of an opioid overdose.”

Now, Roseanne Barr is fleeing the country to avoid The Conners premiere. Read on… thinks this is such propaganda on Roseanne Barr’s part.

Does Roseanne Barr forget that she was in the writer’s room before the reboot of Roseanne started interjecting to make her character addicted to opioids?

It’s a bit ridiculous if you ask us. Roseanne should have thought about her “political” comments online. She denied that he “monkey” remark was racist, but he ex-Tom Arnold threw her under the bus earlier this year saying she was.

No offense to Roseanne Barr, but it appeared that she self-sabotaged her career for the second time and is trying to clean it up. Hollywood ain’t buying it a third time Roseanne.

Now, officials over at ABC are saying they’ve NOT spoken with Barr for months, according to two sources with knowledge of the delicate situation.

CNN reports:

Then they are “setting the record straight”; when “The Conners” was ordered, ABC was insistent that Barr would have no creative or financial involvement with the show.

She is not involved in the writing or production of the new episodes, which casts further doubt on how she would know what the producers are planning to do with her character.

A source close to the production told CNN in July that Barr’s character would not be “killed off” the way Barr is now claiming.

Of course, anything could happen between now and the show’s premiere date, October 16.

ABC would not be commenting on the matter.
