The renewal was expected after Deadline revealed that the four principal cast members of the Roseanne spinoff — Sara Gilbert (who also serves as an executive producer), John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Lecy Goranson — closed new pacts to return for next season.
The Conners, shepherded by executive producer/showrunner Bruce Helford, is ABC’s No. 1 comedy this season in total viewers (4.7 million) and adults 18-49 (0.9/6).
In Season 3, The Conners continued to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford. Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. grappled with parenthood, dating, financial pressures and aging 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 prevailed.
Goodman stars as Dan Conner, Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy, Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner, Emma Kenney as Harris Conner-Healy, Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy, Jayden Rey as Mary Conner and Jay R. Ferguson as Ben.
The Conners, from Werner Entertainment, is executive produced by Tom Werner along with Gilbert, Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen and Tony Hernandez.
The news came the same day ABC made decisions on several scripted series, including bringing back Black-ish for an eighth and final season along with renewing The Goldbergs, The Rookie, A Million Little Things and rookie Home Economics. Call Your Mother was canceled after one season.
