The Conners Season 3 preview, news and trailer.
Get ready for more Conners. ABC has quietly renewed the Roseanne spinoff for Season 3, well-placed insiders have exclusively informed TV Scorecards. The Conners Season 3 will premiere in Fall 2020, per insiders.
Season 3 of The Conners will be shown on Wednesdays at 9:00pm ET (Premieres on October 21st, 2020)
In the new season, we have learned directly from ABC that the season 3 plot will be influenced by the pandemic: the sisters will take new jobs at Wellman Plastics plant, where their late mother and beloved aunt worked over three decades ago. Becky attempts to stay positive despite her her mask and other protective shields, which Darlene says is “easier said than done.”
Season 3 remains highly controversial for political reasons
ABC canceled the highly successul Roseanne TV series in 2018 when Barr compared official Valerie Jarrett to Planet of the Apes on Twitter. The tweet was described by ABC as “repugnant and inconsistent with our values”. As a result of this backlash, ABC revamped the Roseanne show and created a new series with Conner family, but without Roseanne. Some fans of Roseanne remained outraged that The Conners is renewed for season 3, and protested with many comments on TVScorecards.com. One user commented “I have yet to watch a single episode of the Conners. I refuse to. Roseanne was mistreated in the handling of her mishap”.
Trailer for the new season is now available (October 1st update)
