ABC announced the new comedy series, “The Conners,” began production sharing the first cast photo on social media. “The Conners” is a spinoff of the famous family comedy “Roseanne.” In May, ABC cancelled “Roseanne” because of a public controversial comment made by Roseanne Barr.
After a sudden turn of events, the network announced in June the order of a straight to series spinoff “The Conners.” The cast Sara Gilbert, Jayden Rey, Michael Fishman, Ames McNamara, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, and Emma Kenney all return in their roles of the Conner family without Barr.
The half-hour comedy “The Conners” will premiere on Tuesday, October 16 at 8 pm ET on ABC.
