Watch the First Promo of the Roseanne-Less Spinoff The Conners

ABC released a new promo for their upcoming Roseanne spinoff, The Conners.

In the promo, the narrator says there’s “one thing on everyone’s mind… what’s next for The Conners?”

The ad features Laurie Metcalf, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Alicia Goransan, all who are returning to reprise their roles from the classic sitcom Roseanne. It does not at all address the departure of Roseanne Barr, whose character Roseanne Conner supposedly died from an opioid overdose.

Last summer, Roseanne Barr landed herself in hot water after making a racially charged tweet aimed at Valerie Jarrett. Within hours, ABC cancelled the show, which was a ratings juggernaut for the network. It is unclear if The Conners will have as much success as the Roseanne reboot, which netted over 27 million viewers for its premiere.

The Conners premieres Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Watch the promo above, via ABC.
