ABC has not confirmed how Barr will be written off the show.

During a visit to The Dr. Oz Show on Tuesday, Roseanne Barr revealed that she intends to travel to Israel when the Roseanne spinoff The Conners airs in October.

Roseanne, after having apologised, said she regretted the circumstances under which the spin-off had come about. But hoping to prove that Roseanne isn't an indispensable part of the long-running series, liberals demanded that the series be re-configured without Barr's central character.

"Roseanne" was abruptly canceled by ABC in May after Barr posted racist tweets about former President Barack Obama's adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Goodman also defended his Roseanne co-star and said he knows for a fact that Barr is not a racist.

"Oh ya, they killed her", she said, adding, "They have her die of an opioid overdose". The Connors, according to Roseanne, will kill off Roseanne with an opioid overdose.

And the Cape Fear Power Utility Authority said it was in "critical need" of fuel to keep its water treatment plants running. However, it said later in a news release that a source of fuel had been found and there was no immediate threat to service.

Barr found her character's death to be disrespectful to those "who loved that family" in the original "Roseanne" show.

"It's done. It's over", she said.

The Conners has a 10-episode order and stars John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky), and Michael Fishman (D.J.). "I did walk away, so people can keep their jobs". And that's what they chose to do, so there's nothing I can do about it. "Don't think I don't have spies".
