'The Conners' Returns Three Weeks After Roseanne's Death

  • 'The Conners' Returns Three Weeks After Roseanne's Death

On Tuesday night's episode entitled "Keep on Truckin'" of the newly minted Roseanne Barr-less revival spinoff (I guess that's what we're calling it) The Conners, it was learned that the character of Roseanne has died of an opioid overdose.

All eyes will be on The Conners' series debut ratings tonight with the original's central lead cast member and series namesake removed and the entire reboot of a reboot teetering on the edge with many fans sharply divided.

"Sara and I had this scene in the first show where we addressed the grief", Laurie Metcalf, who plays Roseanne's sister Jackie, told People Magazine recently, referring to Sara Gilbert, who plays Darlene. Dan thinks that she died of a heart attack while in their bed - which is why he refuses to sleep in it and opts to sleep on the couch.

John Goodman, who played Roseanne's husband Dan, said he struggled to accept the news of Roseanne's firing when he heard it.

"The morning the racist tweet scandal blew up, Roseanne offered to publicly apologize and do the rounds of every show but Ben and Channing weren't having any of that and wanted her gone", the second source continued.

"This was a choice the network did not have to make".

"What's different now is we are missing our matriarch in the show, so our roles are redefined as they would be in a family".

Facing a huge hole in its schedule, the network was interested in a spinoff, and - because the show had already been renewed for a new season - the stars were owed pay for seven episodes.

"A lot of the motivation for this reboot was audience-directed", Goodman said.

After the episode aired, Roseanne Barr tweeted, "I AIN'T DEAD, BITCHES!"

Sara Gilbert is one of those involved in The Conners' spinoff and was instrumental in the return of Roseanne a year ago.

Nor could they had Barr not withdrawn from financial participation, a condition set by ABC.

However, despite the cause of her demise long being foreshadowed, Barr felt that the shocking death was simply too bleak to fit the tone of the show.

The verbose open letter went on to argue that the "cancellation of Roseanne is an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive", and that, had ABC allowed Barr to return to the network for another season of her sitcom, it could have fixed the political and cultural divide they feel is readily apparent in America.

'I never would have given them to her if I knew she had a problem, ' she says to him.

The original Roseanne was known for tackling important topics with comedy and heart, and it seems like that concept has carried over to The Conners.

Gilbert says "we owe a debt to our viewers" who made the revival a hit. "We make each other laugh". "My whole life I've been under punches, not just my career".
