Fans of the now-defunct sitcom Roseanne get their first tease of the reboot of the rebooted series, The Connors.

Fans of the now-defunct sitcom Roseanne get their first tease of the reboot of the rebooted series, The Connors.

The official synopsis reads:

“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. This iconic family — Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. — grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws 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 prevails.”

Television patriarch John Goodman spilled the beans this week in an interview with The Times that Roseanne’s character will definitely be killed off, saying, “I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”

Goodman also commented on Roseanne’s now-infamous tweet that got her kicked to the curb by ABC that compared former White House advisor, Valerie Jarrett, to an ape.

“I know, I know for a fact she’s not racist,” Goodman told The Times.

In any case, after Roseanne was forced to sign away any future royalties for the upcoming The Connors, the new reboot is set to premiere October 16 at 8pm on ABC.
