Roseanne Barr is still learning a hard lesson about what she posts on social media. Back in May, ABC fired her for some hateful tweets to spite that the reboot of Roseanne had huge ratings. Luckily for the rest of the cast and crew, ABC figured out a way to reboot the show minus Barr and her character. 

The show will come back next month as The Conners, but Barr won't be watching her former costars. So what will she be doing instead? "I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers," Barr shared on the Rabbi Shmuley Podcast over the weekend. 

As for her feeling about the new show, she had this to say. "I’m not going to curse it or bless it. I’m staying neutral," she noted. "I got to stay in the middle or I’ll go dark, and I don’t want to go dark again. I’ve done it. After all, I was married to Tom Arnold!"

The show tweeted out this teaser video Friday.

It will be interesting to see how they address the main character's departure in the spinoff. 

The new show debuts on October 15th. Will you be watching it?
