Following her return to the set of The Conners after sustaining an injury in October, Katey Sagal took to her Instagram to share a snapshot of herself.

“Happy Wednesday!” The Conners star declared in the post. She also hashtagged the shows she has been on throughout her career, including Married With Children, Futurama, 8 Simple Rules, Sons of Anarchy, Rebel, Shameless, and Grand Hotel. 

As previously reported, The Conners actress was struck by a car while crossing the street in Los Angeles in mid-October. Originally it was reported that the driver stopped to help Sagal. But it was lateer revealed that the driver actually didn’t help. 

At the time, law enforcement revealed to TMZ that while The Conners castmate was in fact not the crosswalk, a Tesla apparently didn’t see the actress. The car then tagged her while it was making a left turn. A source further revealed that the Tesla driver did not stop to help the actress. She was later transported to a hospital in Los Angeles. 

The media outlet also reported that law enforcement did not issue any citations and no arrests were made. It was also noted that no alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident. It is currently under investigation. 

A source close to Sagal also told People that she was going to be fine. Her husband, Kurt Sutter, also joked about the incident. “She’s the only one bringing in money right now. So I’ll be picking her up from the hospital later. Taking her to the Dancing With the Stars audition.”

‘The Conners’ Executive Producers Give Update On Katey Sagal’s Condition

Executive producers of The Conners, Bruce Helford and Dave Caplan, spoke about Sagal’s condition and when she will make her return full time to the set. “She was deterred to make it back to the set,” Caplan declared. “And of course, we were delighted.”

Caplin also noted that they didn’t want to rush The Conners actress, but were still delighted that she could get back. “She said, ‘No, no. I’m coming in.’ And there wasn’t a lot of movement in the scene as Bruce was saying. But she said, ‘I’ll see you in January,” meaning she fully expects to be moving around just fine in a few months.”

Helford went on to note that The Conner actress is tough. “When she was on stage, I could see that she was in some discomfort still. I mean, she went through a lot. You don’t get hit by a car and just walk away from that. But she toughed it out.”

In regards to the upcoming episodes of The Conners, Helford added, “A lot of what’s coming up in the season is really Dan and Louise adjusting to life together.”
