With "The Conners" premiere date just weeks away, stars Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman are opening up about what it was like filming the "Roseanne" spinoff without Barr.
“We have to react to what’s missing, but everything else is pretty much the same," Goodman told People magazine in a new interview published Wednesday.
"It was awkward but not awkward," Metcalf recalled of the cast's first day back on set. "It was right but not right, wrong but not wrong. We were sort of looking at each other like, ‘How do you feel? How is everybody?’ Checking in."
In May, Barr was fired from the ABC series for writing a racist tweet about former President Obama's aide Valerie Jarrett. It has been rumored that “The Conners” will address the 65-year-old comedian's absence by killing off her character.
