Roseanne thanks John Goodman for defending her following racist tweet scandal

Louis C.K

Now as the spin-off show, The Conners prepares for its mid-October release, it's emerged how the actress' character will be written out.

Less than a day after a John Goodman spoke out about the cancellation of "Roseanne", defending the comedian and namesake of the show, Roseanne Barr thanked him on Twitter.

"It's an unknown. I guess he'll be mopey and sad because his wife's dead", Goodman said, reported Deadline.

The 66-year-old actor, who played Barr's on-screen husband Dan Conner in the sitcom's original nine-season run as well as the rebooted season that scored massive ratings before being canned, added he went through a bout of depression after the tweet screwed over the entire cast and production crew, too.

First, John Goodman emphatically declared that Roseanne Barr is not a racist.

"I know, I know, for a fact that she's not a racist", Mr. Goodman said of Roseanne Barr, who was sacked from the series in May after she compared former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is black, to a "Planet of the Apes" character on Twitter.

He was found guilty Tuesday of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud. A judge has ordered Mueller's team to notify the court by next Wednesday if a retrial is planned on the 10 counts in Virginia.

Back in May Roseanne shared a tweet in which she claimed former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jett was a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. "I know, for a fact that she's not a racist", he told the Times Sunday.

In addition to John Goodman as Dan Conner, the show will also feature Sara Gilbert as Darlene, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie, Lecy Goranson as Becky and Michael Fishman as D.J.

The ABC hasn't given any official word on how Roseanne's exit from the show will be reflected in the script, reports the New York Post.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys", she tweeted. ABC announced that the show would continue in the form of a spinoff entitled The Conners, and that Barr wouldn't be on that show. "And she's still going through hell", Goodman said.

On Monday, Barr, 65, tweeted her appreciation towards Goodman.

Goodman said the cast will have their work cut out to make the new show a success without her.
