The first teaser for ABC’s The Conners is here to show life after Roseanne
ABC has released the first teaser for The Conners, the Roseanne spinoff that stars everyone except Roseanne Barr — who was swiftly fired from the initial series revival following a racist tweet. While details are scarce, the 30-second teaser shows the Conner family in a bit of disarray, trying to make sense of their lives as they move forward without their conspicuously absent matriarch. You can check out the teaser in the post below!
On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family — Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky, and D.J. — grapple with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws 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.
Goodman recently made comments that Barr’s character would apparently be dead in the spinoff, saying that Dan will be “mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”
In June, The Conners was greenlit to series with an order of 10 episodes for fall 2018. The series, featuring John Goodman (“Dan”), Laurie Metcalf (“Jackie”), Sara Gilbert (“Darlene”), Lecy Goranson (“Becky”) and Michael Fishman (“D.J.”) as their beloved Conner characters, is set to air Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 p.m.).
Tom Werner will executive produce, along with Sara Gilbert, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez. Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, and Bruce Rasmussen are also writers. The series is from Tom Werner and Werner Entertainment.
The Conners will premiere on ABC on October 16, 2018.
