Roseanne To Be Killed Off, Roseanne’s Show To Continue


The time has come for Roseanne to die.

On the show she created, of course. Originally, ABC simply cancelled Roseanne’s reboot after Barr tweeted out a racial slur against former Obama official Valerie Jarrett. Now, they’re keeping all the cast members of the reboot, but killing Roseanne off.

According to the network:

After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family — Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. — grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns — with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

The hot rumor is that Roseanne will die of an opioid overdose, since in a recent episode, it turns out she was hiding oxycontin in her refrigerator. It would be far more appropriate for Roseanne to be shot by President Trump on Fifth Avenue.

In any case, the show is bound to be a failure. This would be like killing off Seinfeld on Seinfeld, or killing off both Will and Grace on Will & Grace – though, come to think of it, nobody watches Will & Grace anyway. Still, it will be fascinating to watch the media attempt to prop up the show now that Roseanne — the only Trump supporter involved with the show — has been ousted.
