Roseanne Barr’s character in her spinoff “The Conners,”, which was canceled by ABC this summer because of Barr’s alleged racist tweets, will be murdered.

Co-star John Goodman talked about his character during an interview with The Sunday Times of London, and said, “I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”

“I was surprised. I’ll put it this way, I was surprised at the response,” he said. “And that’s probably all I should say about it.”

“I was broken-hearted, but I thought, ‘OK, it’s just show business, I’m going to let it go,’ ” he added.

“But I went through a period, about a month, where I was very depressed. I’m a depressive anyway, so any excuse that I can get to lower myself, I will. But that had a great deal to do with it, more than I wanted to admit.”


“I know, I know, for a fact that she’s not a racist,” said Goodman.
