‘Roseanne’ spinoff ‘The Conners’ gets green light; will the family move?

The Conners are returning to television. Will their Evansville house return as well?


The new show already has a 10 episode order for fall 2018 and will star original cast members John Goodman as Dan, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie, Sara Gilbert as Darlene, Lecy Goranson as Becky, and Michael Fishman as D.J.

According to an ABC press release, “After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before.”

The release also stated Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series.

There is no word on whether familiar Evansville sights will be used in the spinoff. Should the Conners move to a new home?

The creator and original producer of Roseanne, Matt Williams, is from Evansville, Indiana and graduated from the University of Evansville. He often used shots from around Evansville in Roseanne.
