A Roseanne character returns to The Conners in Season 5 – spoilers
Be assured, conners Fans: The Powers That Be have not forgotten their promise to bring an original roseanne Character back to Lanford. It’s just taking a little longer than we expected.
In September, executive producers Bruce Helford and Dave Caplan told TVLine that a character was last seen at the beginning of the original series roseanne (1988-97) was about to make her debut appearance in Season 5 of the ABC offshoot. “I can’t tell, but here’s someone from the past,” Helford said at the time. “I think people are going to be very surprised and be like, ‘Oh s–t!'” Caplan also chimed in to say it’s someone that “true fans are going to really appreciate.”
Two months later, Helford tells us the big reveal is still on the way — though it may not come before the show’s holiday break.
“Oh yeah, still happening,” the EP confirmed Tuesday. “I don’t want to tell you much… It could very well be after the first of the new year.”
But even more spurred on, Helford offered us another, not-so-minor clue: “It’s a man. And it’s not just one characterit is that person who played the character,” he said. This would indicate that the original actor will return and have the role Not been recast.
So who could it be? Since 2018 roseanne Revival we had appearances from Johnny Galecki (as David), James Pickens Jr. (as Chuck) and Noel Fisher (who took over the role of Ed Jr., last seen as a baby). We can also rule out Roseanne and Dan’s fourth child, Jerry, and Jackie and Fred’s son, Andy — neither of whom exist, so far The Conners is concerned. Also, none of the offspring were introduced “early” in the run of the original series.
Three more episodes of The Conners remain – on December 16th, 30th and 7th – before the series’ winter break before Season 5 resumes on Wednesday January 11th.
