ABC has already secured the Dunphy-Prichett-Tucker clan of Modern Family for their 11th and final season, now they’re working on a season 2 renewal for The Conners.
The three main cast members, Sara Gilbert, John Goodman, and Laurie Metcalf are close to finalizing deals to return to the Roseanne spin-off next season. With their new deals, the trio are expected to make $375,000 over the course of 13 episodes, 2 more episode over The Conners season 1. Fellow Roseanne cast members Micheal Fishman and Lecy Goranson are also expected to return.
Renewing The Conners should be a top priority for ABC for maintaining it’s Tuesday night comedy lineup . Even though season 1 of The Conners didn’t perform as well as the highly-anticipated Roseanne reboot, it still averaged 9.5 million viewers and a 2.2 in the coveted 18-49 demographic, ranking as this seasons top rated new comedy and ABC’s top rated comedy in both total viewers and in the demo.
