“Roseanne”, one of the most successful ’90s TV comedies, is making a comeback — but the joyful reunion will be over-shadowed by a dark tragedy!

The blue-collar family sitcom, featuring Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, will be missing one of its brightest stars: Glenn Quinn.

The Irish actor — who played “Mark Healy”, the tough-guy hubby of Roseanne’s TV daughter “Becky” — tragically died in 2002 of a heroin overdose at 32.

Glenn had made a bundle while working on the show, but after getting hooked on booze and drugs, he lost it all!

During his sad last days, the homeless junkie had been crashing on a friend’s couch — which was where his lifeless body was found.

The handsome, green-eyed Irishman starred on “Roseanne” from 1990 to 1997, and earned enough cash to buy a posh home in the Hollywood Hills, drive a Mercedes-Benz and own a share of an L.A. rock club.

“He lost everything because of his addictions to booze, coke and heroin,” said a source close to Glenn.

The actor’s ugly end devastated Roseanne.

“Everyone in the cast and crew loved Glenn,” Roseanne said shortly after his death. “We adored him.”

“Glenn’s death casts a pall over the new show,” confided an insider who worked on the show.
