"The Conners" Season 2: ABC Orders More Episodes!

More "The Conners" is a good thing, right?

According to TV Line, ABC has announced the upcoming second season of The Conners will consist of 19 episodes, up considerably from the first season's 11 episode order. The increase is not a surprise when you consider that The Conners Season 1 averaged 7.5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the demo in live + same day results.

Additionally, the "Roseanne" spinoff managed to vault double digits with delayed viewing factored in, proving that the show really is a hit without Roseanne Barr.

The Conners is the network's highest-rated comedy series and No.3-rated program overall, so the network knows that viewers are watching the show.

‘The Conners’ Episode Count Revealed, Will Have “Around Full” Season 2 Order

  • Deadline
The upcoming second season of ABC’s The Conners will be the largest for the franchise since it returned to the network two years ago with Roseanne.

Talks with the cast are still underway but “we will end up with around a full season,” ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said of The Conners‘ upcoming second season during the Disney upfront press event Tuesday morning.

A full season in broadcast is 22 episodes. I hear that the Roseanne spinoff is eying a 19-episode second season contingent on being able to work out star Laurie Metcalf’s schedule.

ABC renewed The Conners in March after series’ producer Werner Entertainment secured new deals with the core cast of Roseanne veterans, John Goodman, who plays Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf (Jackie Harris), Sara Gilbert (Darlene Conner) and Lecy Goranson (Becky Conner-Healy). The series’ first season consisted of 11 episodes, while the Roseanne revival season had 9 episodes.

Per insiders, some additional wiggle room in the schedules of the principal actors — i.e. John Goodman, Sara Gilbert

Chernobyl Is a Harrowing and Worthy Look at One of the World's Worst Man-Made Disasters

After you're over whatever surprises Game of Thrones offers you on Sunday and you've caught up on Veep and Barry, return to HBO for something a little more unpleasant.

A miniseries about the worst nuclear disaster in human history isn't something you watch for enjoyment, even if you're keen on that kind of horror.

No, Chernobyl is something you watch because everybody needs to know what happens when mistakes are made for selfish reasons, and lies are maintained to save face.

Everybody should know about Chernobyl.

But with 30 years of life moving on after the tragedy, the world's attention turned elsewhere. Unless you're a fan of shows like Mysteries of the Abandoned, you might not know anything about the catastrophe of Chernobyl.

The Righteous Gemstones Trailer: John Goodman Runs a Wild Family Business

‘The Righteous Gemstones’ First Trailer: John Goodman Leads Dysfunctional Televangelist Family in New Comedy Series

‘The Righteous Gemstones’ First Trailer: John Goodman Leads Dysfunctional Televangelist Family in New Comedy Series
When “The Righteous Gemstones” was first announced back in October, the first details promised a “world famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work.” Now, HBO has released the first look at the upcoming comedy, which seems ready to deliver on all three of those descriptors.

John Goodman, Danny McBride and Adam Devine star as the three faces of the Gemstones as they travel and broadcast their message far and wide. Eli (Goodman) the patriarch struggles to keep his family and fortune together while Jesse (McBride) and Kelvin (Devine) do their best to follow in their father’s footsteps. Jesse’s ambitions are more focused on growing the Gemstone brand, while Kelvin looks to intensify the effectiveness of their methods. Edi Patterson plays Judy, the Gemstone daughter not afforded the same opportunities as her brothers, but still looking to do what she can to change her family’s ways.

‘The Righteous Gemstones’ Trailer Stars Danny McBride and John Goodman as Bickering Televangelists

HBO has released the first The Righteous Gemstones trailer. The upcoming comedy focuses on three generations of televangelists played by Danny McBride, John Goodman, and Adam Devine. This looks hilarious and as a big fan of Eastbound and Down, The Righteous Gemstones is a must-see (I’m still ashamed of not having gotten around to Vice Principals). I also think that the world of televangelists is ripe for satire, and I’m eager to see what McBride has put together here. McBride’s HBO shows are known for their bite …

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+
Ron Howard is in talks to bring a “Willow” sequel series to Disney+, with actor Warwick Davis — who played the title character in the 1988 film — set to return, TheWrap has learned.

Howard said that “serious discussions” for a continuation — not a reboot — from himself and “Solo” writer Jonathan Kasdan were ongoing at the upcoming streaming service, during an interview with the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.

“Warwick is so cool and so good and he’s such a good actor that I really hope we get the chance to see the mature Willow in action,” Howard said.

Disney+ declined TheWrap’s request for comment on the project.

Directed by Howard and produced by George Lucas, “Willow” starred Davis as Willow, a reluctant farmer who plays a critical role in protecting a special baby from a tyrannical queen who vows to destroy her and take over the world in a high fantasy setting.

‘The Conners’ exec producer Bruce Helford on bringing back family from cancellation [Exclusive Video Interview]
“My first thought was ‘Why?,” recalls creator and executive producer Bruce Helford about that fateful day in May 2018 when ABC’s successful “Roseanne” reboot was unceremoniously dumped by the network after a racially insensitive tweet by the show’s star Roseanne Barr. “My next immediate thought was that I had 300 people out of work, I’m about to lose my directors and most of my writers,” he recalls. “We have a great show, we have four other cast members that could potentially be the leads of their own shows, is there not something in who this family is?” Watch our exclusive video interview with Helford above.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Will Feature New And Original Kaiju

After the success of the McU, other studios rushed to get their own cinematic universes into production. Many of them fizzled out, but Warner Bros. and Legendary PicturesMonsterVerse seems to be one of the few success stories.

Godzilla had its flaws, but at least reestablished the titular creature as a majestic and awesomely powerful beast, and Kong: Skull Island added a whole bunch of texture, backstory and John Goodman to the franchise. Now, in about a month, we’re set to see the most insanely gigantic monster showdown we’ve witnessed in years in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The awesome trailers have already teased the arrival of many classic Toho monsters, showing us Rodan, Ghidorah, Mothra and, of course, the Big G himself. The word is that we’ll see Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra teaming up to take down King Ghidorah in what seems destined to be an
