ABC shares first set image of Roseanne-less ‘Connors’ cast
As if it weren’t already official enough, ABC put the final nail in Roseanne Connor’s coffin Friday morning.
The network posted the first official on-set image of the cast of its “Rosanne” spinoff “The Connors.”
The image shows the same actors as were in last season’s reboot of the hit ABC comedy, minus Rosanne Barr, gathered around the Connors’ kitchen table.
John Goodman is surrounded by co-stars Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman, along with the recent additions of Emma Kennedy, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey.
Goodman made news recently by revealing that Barr’s character would be killed off in the new series. Speaking to London’s Sunday Times about his character Dan, “It’s an unknown. I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”
“The Connors” is set to debut on ABC on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m.
