‘The Conners‘ tells the story of a blue-collar American family. It is the spin-off continuation of ‘Roseanne,’ which was taken off air after Roseanne Barr’s hateful comments on Twitter. However, fans have taken to the new show equally well, especially since we see more of a working-class American family. Their discussions and troubles are all too relatable, and the series deals with situations humorously.
Season 2 has been a resounding success with a live episode of the show airing as well. We have also seen some significant character developments like Dan’s heartbreak from beyond the grave. Naturally, you might be wondering whether we will be getting a Season 3 of ‘The Conners.’ We have got you covered with the latest updates in that regard.
The Conners Season 3 Release Date
‘The Conners’ Season 2 premiered on September 24, 2019, and came to an end on May 5, 2020, on ABC. As far as the next season goes, we have some exciting news for fans. The show has been greenlit for yet another season. ‘The Conners’ saw a nice bump in viewership in Season 2 and happens to be the most-watched comedy on ABC. Considering the network’s impressive roster, this is no small feat, and ABC was always bound to renew the show. Our best estimate is that due to the possible delays because of coronavirus pandemic, ‘The Conners’ Season 3 can only release sometime in 2021.
The Conners Season 3 Cast: Who Can be in it?
We know that the four leads have signed new deals for 19 additional episodes, meaning they will be reprising their roles in ‘The Conners’ Season 3. Among them are John Goodman, who plays Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf, who appears as Jackie Harris, Sara Gilbert, who plays the role of Darlene Conner-Healy, and Lecy Goranson, who’s seen as Becky Conner. Other cast members who we expect to see are Michael Fishman as D.J., Dan’s son, and Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy. Emma Kenney is likely to be back as Harris as well.
The Conners Season 3 Plot: What Can it be About?
‘The Conners’ is a sitcom about how the blue-collar family struggles to make ends meet every day, in a fictional exurb in Lanford, Illinois. The show makers always try to incorporate recent, relevant events and show how the Conners deal with them. Therefore, it is likely that the family is poised to fall on harder times.
The show makers have expressed an interest in incorporating the coronavirus pandemic into Season 3’s storyline. They intend to show how a family without a safety net operates when a situation arises out of the blue. What happens when a catastrophic event affects those already living on the edge? ‘The Conners’ Season 3 will try and address that, apart from many other points.
We are likely to see one of the family members taking up a job that nobody wants. For example, they could work at a grocery store, exposing themselves to the possibility of contracting the virus. The Lunch Box, which was finally opened in Season 2, might take a hit like most eateries across America are currently suffering. We might even see Dan getting some mortgage forgiveness. The new season promises to be topical, with so many grave events transpiring in 2020.
