In a recent interview, John Goodman confirms The Sunday Times stated that Roseanne Barr's Roseanne character is killed to make way for the Barr-less spin-off, The Conners . He described his character on the show, which was hastily invented by ABC after Barr's racist tweets, causing the abrupt demolition of Roseanne's revival (19459013). Goodman says, "I guess he'll be mean and sad because his wife is dead."
Goodman says in an interview that he is "surprised" by the response to Barr's Tweet, which compares black former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a character from The Planet of the Apes and Barr, "I know 'I know, the fact is, she's not a racist.' But while he describes how he and Barr yell at each other during his original audition for the show, the interviewer asks if they are "good friends." Over the years, Goodman pauses and replies, "We were working friends."
Goodman, who calls himself "rather a big fan of unions," says he feels trapped in the suffering of the working class Roseanne but says about the current political situation of the Americans "Distracted by race and immigration instead of standing up for themselves "and that Donald Trump was" for himself ". He says he has not heard of Barr since Roseannes cancellation, although he sent her an e-mail thanking her for giving up her rights to the characters of what it was The Conners allowed to continue without Barr benefiting financially.
The Conners will be premiered on October 16 on ABC.
