Johnny Galecki and Juliette Lewis are set to join ABC’s new “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners” which has received a ten-episode order with plans for a Fall 2018 release.
Galecki will be reprising his role of David, while Lewis will be a newcomer in the role of his girlfriend Blue. Her character was mentioned by David, but never seen, during the “Roseanne” revival earlier this year.
How many episodes each will appear in is unclear, especially with Galecki’s commitments to the final season of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory”. The pair previously played brother and sister in 1989’s “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”.
John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman co-star in the series which will premiere on ABC on October 16th.
