“The Conners” is the spin-off of the revival of ABC’s “Roseanne,” which vanished into the wind like the snap of Thanos when it’s title character discovered there are, in fact, some lines that should not be crossed. The critically acclaimed show also won over audiences ranking as television’s No. 1 new comedy which made it an easy decision for ABC to order a second season for the show.
“We are proud to be continuing the story of the iconic Conners family,” said Burke. “This team is fearless in their willingness to tackle contemporary issues with humor and heart, and I have no doubt they will continue to outdo themselves.”
In “The Conners,” this iconic family grapples with parenthood, divorce, dating, aging, and financial pressures in working-class America. Through it all – the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.
The series benefits from an all-star cast including: John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy and Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy. Goodman has really had a chance to shine as an actor this season and we can’t wait to have more from him.
The freshman season boasted a star-studded lineup of guest appearances, featuring Matthew Broderick, Juliette Lewis, Katey Sagal, Mary Steenburgen, Justin Long, Jay R. Ferguson and Sarah Chalke, among others. Additionally, fan favorites from “Roseanne” reprise their roles including Estelle Parsons as Beverly Harris, Natalie West as Crystal Anderson and James Pickens Jr. as Chuck Mitchell. Expect even more guest stars in the second season.
It’s not yet known how many episodes are ordered, but last season had 11 episodes. It would be nice to see more this season. What would you like to see from a second season of “The Conners?”
