    There are rumors it's going to be renewed, but no official announcement has been made yet.

    It's most likely on a hiatus right now.

    Yep. Good season finale with lots of stories involving all the main characters.

    I wonder if David will be a regular next year since Johnny Galecki won't have The Big Bang Theory to worry about anymore.

    ‘The Conners’ Renewed for Season 2 at ABC

    ‘The Conners’ Renewed for Season 2 at ABC

    ABC has renewed its highest-rated new show, “The Conners,” for a second season, Variety has learned.

    The show’s stars, including John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Ames McNamara and Laurie Metcalf, are all set to return to Lanford, after several of them signed a new deal with the network on Thursday.

    “We are proud to be continuing the story of the iconic Conner family,” said ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke in a statement. “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.”

    The comedy’s freshman season achieved an average of 9.5 million total viewers per episode and a 2.2 rating in the key 18-49 demo. The show’s debut, sans Roseanne, achieved a 2.3 rating and 10.5 million viewers.

    Season one ran for 11 episodes and included a large lineup of guest stars, including Matthew Broderick, Juliette Lewis, Katey Sagal, Mary Steenburgen, Justin Long, Jay R. Ferguson and Sarah Chalke, among others.

    The show is a reboot of “Roseanne,” which was abruptly cancelled in March, 2018, following racially-charged remarks made earlier in the year by Roseanne Barr.

    The Conners” hails from Werner Entertainment and executive produced by Tom Werner with Sara Gilbert, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen and Tony Hernandez all serving as executive producers.

    ABC said they will announce additional cast at a later date.

    I loved The Conners, looking forward to season 2.
    To be honest I liked it better than the Roseanne reboot, though I liked it too.

    I became very fond of Becky, she's my favorite.

    It would be nice if Rosanne came back :) (Even as a neighbour who visits everyday)

    A guest appearance from Glenn Quinn as Mark would be more likely.

    I think Laurie Metcalf deserved a supporting actress nomination.

    she could be the ghost of Rosanne. You don't ever hear or see from her except for her laugh at the end of the opening theme.

    If there was a miracle turnaround, I would love to see Rosanne in a hospital with paralyzed vocal chords caused by heavy drug use. This way she can be on the show & not be able to say anything.

    That would be funny, but.. yeah, not happening.

    Plus, the show as it is is really great and doesn't need a gimmick like that at this point. The show is doing just fine without her.

    I laughed out loud several times. I'm content, the same as last week.

    The homophobic grandma in tonight’s episode was played by Meagen Fay, who played stick-up-her-butt next-door-neighbor Kathy Bowman in the original series.

    The ongoing feud between Roseanne and Kathy Bowman was one my favorite parts of the original series, and I was disappointed that the Bowmans didn’t last longer.
