The Conners, ABC’s most-watched comedy series, is all set to return for a season 2 next month. The notable Roseanne-scion emerged as a series of its own last Summer after the franchise dismissed its original lead Roseanne Barr for flinging racial slurs at the Former Whitehouse Advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Its run was eyed with suspicion as people did not expect the show to run for very long without its matriarchal mascot. There were even rounds that the production team was later ‘begging’ Barr to return to the show. However, The Conners stood strong amid all the controversies. And after a brilliant freshman run, it scored not only renewal but also an Emmy nomination. The show is currently filming its second season, which will feature all the lead actors from the first season along with a few returning guest stars. The fate of one actor; however, remains in contention. The Unicorn

Will Robinson Be A Part Of The Conners Season 2?

Roseanne Barr was not the only actor who did not return to star in the spin-off of her show. The Conners had also added Maya Lynne Robinson to its cast in recasting after the cancellation of the Roseanne revival. The first season of the Roseanne revival had starred Xosha Roquemore as Geena-Williams Conner, DJ’s wife, and Mary’s mother. However, when the Roseanne reboot became The Conners, Maya Lynne Robinson stepped in as the new Geena.

Recently, as The Conners began production for its Season 2, its entire lead cast came on stage to greet the show’s dedicated live-studio audience. This included Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, and Jayden Rey the kids of The Conner household, who aren’t series regulars. Maya Lynne Robinson was; however, missing during this introductory sequence. And this is logically stirring rumors of her departure from the show. Roseanne Barr

    I think everyone should leave the Conners, especially John Goodman. I’m glad that Goodman actually spoke up for Roseanne as opposed to many of the other cast members. And Goodman is better leaving the Conners and starting his own show. He doesn’t need to be on a garbage show like the Conners, which was made by liberal bigots by ABC.

    And ABC has become notorious for shaming conservatives, especially for canceling Last Man Standing, because Tim Allen was conservative.

    Let’s not forget that if first season of the Conners had at least 20 episodes then it would of been banking in on an early cancellation, especially since the ratings started dropping after the season premier, and I’d bet good money that the ratings will drop some more in the second season, and then finally this garbage spinoff is off the air like it should be.

    Roseanne really shouldn’t of signed a paper saying she can’t get any rights off the show. Instead she should slap ABC with a wrongful termination suit, and go after that evil liberal witch Channing Dungey for fucking her over.

    You see it’s not Roseanne who should be sorry. It’s those hypocritical liberal execs at ABC, especially Channing Dungey who should be sorry. And Roseanne’s wrongful termination is one of the many reasons I’ve left liberalism. Who cares what Roseanne tweeted. It wasn’t any of ABC’s business to fuck Roseanne over, because of some supposedly racist tweet.
