[ # ] Did John Goodman reveal how The Conners will deal with Roseanne?
August 27th, 2018 under John Goodman, Roseanne

Ever since it was announced that ABC fired Roseanne from her show and it will live on as The Conners, we have wondered how they are going to handle her absence.

John Goodman sat down with The Times in London and he might have spoiled what is to come on the spinoff. He told them, “It’s an unknown. I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.” It makes sense for them to go that way because how else can you explain why she left her family. Plus, they have the way out because she was addicted to opioids in the season finale and needed knee surgery.

But here is the other problem, if they focus on her death too much, then will be people want to watch a sad sitcom? Eight Simple Rules was able to do it after John Ritter suddenly past away, but Gimme A Break has some issues after Dolph Sweet passed away from cancer. Then there are shows like Good Times and The Hogan Family, that lost a lead to contract negotiations. Both shows were able to move after killing off the person who was let go from the series.

Will The Conners be able to do the same? We will just have to tune in starting on October 16th to find out. Personally, I am not optimistic because the show was pretty awful last season. How do you feel about it all?
