ABC has released some new photos from The Conners, its spinoff from the canceled Roseanne. The snaps — check them out below — feature original-series and revival regulars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson along with Jayden Rey, Ames McNamara and Emma Kenney, who play the Conners’ grandkids and were upped to regular roles for the spinoff.
The sitcom continues the Conner family saga without Roseann Barr, who was fired from the successful Roseanne revival in the aftermath of her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama.
