The Conners is an upcoming American television sitcom created for ABC; it is a spin-off of Roseanne. It follows the Conners, a working-class family, struggling to get by on a limited household income who, after a sudden turn of events, are forced to face the daily struggles of life in their home in the drab fictional mid-state exurb of Lanford, Illinois in a way they never have before. The series is produced by Werner Entertainment, with Bruce Helford serving as showrunner.
The series stars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, Jayden Rey, and Maya Lynne Robinson, with all except Robinson reprising their roles from Roseanne. Development on a spin-off began following the cancellation of Roseanne in May 2018, due to remarks made by Roseanne Barr on Twitter. The next month, ABC ordered the series and confirmed the adult principal cast's involvement, while Kenney, McNamara, and Rey were confirmed in August. It is scheduled to air in the Tuesday, 8:00 PM, slot its predecessor was previously scheduled to hold during the 2018–19 television season. The series is set to premiere on October 16, 2018.
