The good news about ABC sitcom "The Conners" is that it's back for season 6 on February 7. The bad news is that it is almost certainly the final spin round the block for Dan Conner (John Goodman) and his lovable yet dysfunctional blue-collar family from Lanford, Illinois.
Mary (Jayden Rey) and DJ Tanner (Michael Fishman) might not be around but, Dan can still count on Darlene (Sara Gilbert), Jackie (Laurie Metcalfe), Becky (Alicia Goranson), Harris (Emma Kenney) and Mark (Ames McNamara) to make his life more difficult that it might ordinarily need to be.
Happily, Bev (96-year-old Estelle Parsons) and FedEx pilot Tyler (Sean Austin) will also be making returns to the show and, while one "really exciting" cameo remains under wraps, the producers were delighted to announce that Nick Offerman ("The Last of Us") will follow in the footsteps of other great names who have appeared in the "Roseanne" spin-off such as Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Juliette Lewis and Candice Bergen.
So brace yourselves for the sitcom that wears its heart on its sleeve and seldom fails to hit the mark. Each of the 13 episodes – it's a shorter-than-usual season – will air live on ABC and be streamed the following day on Hulu (although don't expect to find past seasons on the latter as The CW has acquired the rights).
