The spin-off "Roseanne" on Friday officially received an order for the second season of ABC, a move that was not surprising. Despite the controversy that led to its creation, "The Conners" was a good performer for ABC in its first season, recording an average of 9.5 million viewers and constituting the first comedy of the season.
"We are proud to continue the history of the iconic Conners family," said Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, in a statement. "This team is not afraid to want to solve contemporary problems with humor and heart, and I have no doubt that it will continue to excel."
"The Conners" debuted in October and revolves around the family of Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr) struggling with her sudden death due to opioid abuse.
Throughout his first season, he also tackled issues such as divorce and socio-economic pressures on the working class.
His first season ended in January.
