The Conners Premiere Confirms the Dark Way Roseanne Barr's Character Is Killed Off

The episode, "Keep on Truckin," picks up just three weeks after Roseanne's season 10 finale, finding the remaining Conners sitting at the kitchen table. Although the family initially believes that the Conner matriarch passed away due to a complication from her knee surgery, it's eventually revealed by the Coroner's Office autopsy that Roseanne overdosed on opioids.
