The Conners is an American sitcom made for television as a spin-off of the hugely popular and long-running sitcom TV series Roseanne. It stars, among many others, Golden Globe winner John Goodman (Roseanne, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) as Dan Conner, Academy Award nominee Laurie Metcalf (Getting On, 3rd Rock from the Sun) as Jackie Harris, and Primetime Emmy nominee Sara Gilbert (The Big Bang Theory, Roseanne) as Darlene Conner-Healy. The show follows the Conner family, a working class household with a modest income that poses all kinds of problems on a daily basis. In The Conners, the original show's lead character Roseanne has passed away and the members of the family now need to face life and all of its challenges in ways they never had to before. The series has been nominated for several awards, including two Primetime Awards for Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series and a Critics' Choice Television Award.
