Roseanne is no more, and tonight, a spin-off featuring her family, The Conners, takes its place. One question will be answered going in, however: Is Roseanne dead?
Roseanne the character, that is. Roseanne Barr is still alive, though no longer a part of this new series, and all indications point to the series killing off the Roseanne Conner character.
The season premiere is called “Keep on Truckin'” and you can find 52 photos below; hopefully at least a few of them will confirm Roseanne’s fate. Or, of course, you can watch at 8PM ET/PT October 16 on ABC.
