The 65-year-old actress and comedian took to Twitter on Tuesday to speak out after Goodman defended her in an interview with The Sunday Times.

"Everything's fine", he said, before commenting on ABC deciding to suspend its Emmys campaign for the show's 10th season.

Roseanne Barr tweeted her thanks to John Goodman for saying she isn't a racist.

"I was surprised. I'll put it this way, I was surprised at the response, and that's probably all I should say about it", Goodman, 66, said.

In his Sunday Times interview, Goodman said he was devastated that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne in the fallout of Barr's tweet.

Barr said her controversial tweet was misinterpreted and that she is not a racist, and Goodman agreed.

Fans already knew that Roseanne Barr would not be appearing in the upcoming series The Conners.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne revival cast including Goodman as Dan, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie, Sara Gilbert as Darlene, Lecy Goranson as Becky and Michael Fishman as D.J.

Some feel the show will be just fine without Roseanne.

John Goodman's character, it was revealed by Roseanne in the last season's closing minutes in 1997, had really died at his daughter's wedding.

John Goodman told the Sunday Times that once she relinquished her rights and the spin-off was a go he thanked her via email. 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.

In a new interview with The Times, Goodman revealed that after the series was canceled he went through a period of depression, saying he was "broken-hearted" by Barr's actions and the ending of the series.

ABC fired Barr after she posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama. "And she's still going through hell".

"The Conners" premieres October 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
