ABC announced today that The Conners will be returning for a third season. The good news comes two weeks after the comedy concluded its sophomore run. The renewal was expected, as the show has been a solid performer for the network and the cast reportedly signed on for another year last month.
A spin-off of Roseanne, which had its time on the air cut short due to controversy surrounding its star, The Conners continues to follow the lives of the titular family, albeit without its matriarch. The story picks up after a sudden turn of events alters their landscape forever. Forced to continue living their daily working-class lives in Lanford in a completely new way, Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky, and D.J. tackle everything from parenthood and financial pressure to dating and unexpected pregnancy.
Look for Season 3 of The Conners during the 2020-2021 season.
