While the show hasn’t been officially renewed by ABC yet, it looks like The Conners is returning for a fifth season. Deadline has reported that the main members of the cast – John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, and Lecy Goranson – have all reached agreements for next season. Final details, including an episode count, are still being worked out. The most recent seasons have had 20 installments each.
The cast of The Conners has year-to-year contracts instead of the standard six-year contracts most actors get when they sign on for a network show.
Also starring, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, Jayden Rey, and Jay R. Ferguson, the series began as a spin-off of Roseanne. The ABC series continues to be one of the network’s top-performing comedies and ranks fifth among all of ABC’s current scripted shows.
