The fate of Roseanne Barr’s character on her namesake show was revealed on Tuesday night — four months after ABC axed the reboot because she tweeted racist remarks about an Obama-era official.

“The Conners,” the “Roseanne” spinoff which had its premiere on Tuesday, revealed that matriarch Roseanne died from overdosing on prescription pain pills.

The article goes on to state the following:

The show opened with the Conners quickly addressing the departure, but her death was soon confirmed after sister Jackie Harris received a call about the autopsy, which revealed the cause of death.

“They think that she must’ve taken the pills right before bed, and with her health issues, it was enough to stop her breathing,” Jackie told family members.

    I would have had to take pain pills to endure watching these hypocrites, especially Sara Gilbert and Wanda Sykes.

    Roseanne was the only real funny one in it. Anyway, too much political bs and stupid jokes. Also, some of the characters were a stretch.

    We watched it just to see what they say or do without her. At least they addressed opioid problems people have these days. Only thing I really hated is the young boy kinda dressing like a girl and he said how he liked boys.
