Roseanne Barr has revealed how her character will get killed in the upcoming spinoff of Roseanne — an opioid overdose.

Barr, who was fired from the ABC series in May after writing a racist tweet, told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show, Walk Away, that the writers of the ABC spinoff The Conners have decided how to get her character off the show.

“Oh ya, they killed her,” she said, according to Fox News. “They have her die of an opioid overdose.”

Barr thinks that her character’s fate is disrespectful to fans “who loved that family” on the original series, but said “there’s nothing” she can do about it.

“There’s nothing I can do about it,” Barr said on the show. “It’s done. It’s over.”

Barr’s former co-star John Goodman previously revealed that Barr’s character would die in the spin-off but did not say how. ABC has yet to comment.
