‘Conners’ clue?


John Goodman is speculating that this fall’s “Roseanne” spinoff will mean curtains for the matriarch played by Roseanne Barr.

In an interview with the Sunday Times of London, Goodman said he wasn’t sure how the new series, titled “The Conners,” will be structured.

But he guessed that his character will be “mopey and sad” because his wife has died.

Goodman played husband, Dan Conner, to Barr’s character on ABC’s original “Roseanne” and last season’s revival. The network fired Barr after she posted a racist tweet, which she apologized for but has said was misinterpreted.
