You know your spinoff has sufficient buzz when an empty couch is all you need to get your audience’s attention. To be fair, it is a truly iconic couch, and ABC is relying on all your potentially complicated emotions about the couch’s return to hype the premiere of their new Roseanne spinoff The Conners. After Roseanne Barr’s titular show was canceled following a racist tweet, you probably weren’t that surprised when John Goodman recently mused that his character Dan Conner would be “mopey and sad because his wife’s dead” in the new show. But if Roseanne Conner is dead, where is the rest of the Conner clan? Hiding behind the couch? Looks like you’ll have to wait until Tuesday, October 16, to find out.
