Patient fans of ABC sitcom The Conners are waiting and watching for the show’s next episode. When will it come on TV?

Let’s check that out with an assist from Gizmo Story.

So, the show that stars John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Laurie Metcalf, and Michael Fishman returns to the ABC lineup on Dec. 1.

It will be called Yard Sale, Phone Fail, and a College Betrayal.

According to Matt & Jess, Louise, played by Katey Sagal, starts to move into the Conners’ home. Dan, played by Goodman, decides to sell the furniture set he bought for Roseanne when they were first married. But he soon finds parting with the furniture – and old memories – harder than he thought it would be.

The Conners returns on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, on ABC.

‘The Conners’ Has Put Becky Through A Lot, So Where Does She Go Next?

Let’s take a look at how Becky is doing this season on The Conners.

Her life has not been easy. Yet this season, Lecy Goranson, who plays Becky, is turning her life around.

As you might remember, Becky has been working on staying sober from alcoholism.

During Season 1 on The Conners, she started drinking a lot. Then she ended up having a one-night stand with her La Casita Bonita co-worker, Emilio Rodriguez. 

Becky got pregnant and The Conners character, at 43, was struggling with the idea of raising a child.

She did consider giving up the baby for adoption. But she ends up keeping the baby girl, named Beverly Rose as an honor for her grandmother and great-grandmother.

Becky did happen to get her drinking under control.

For the first few months that her baby was around, she stayed sober. Struggles as a single parent, though, weighed her down.

Therefore, Becky started working long hours at Wellman Plastics—the same place Roseanne and Aunt Jackie, played by Metcalf, worked during the first season of Roseanne. Then she started going to school at the local community college in hopes of moving on up.

There Was One ‘Roseanne’ Character Who Got Stiffed on ABC Sitcom

Do you remember Jerry Garcia Conner? Yeah, we thought you might if you are a longtime fan of Roseanne. Of course, we are talking about The Conners.

Apparently, Becky made an interesting comment in the 2020 Halloween episode.

At one point, she mentioned she is one of Dan and Roseanne’s three children. Dan jokes that he and Roseanne “had one favorite and two backups.” The name remembered by fans? Jerry Garcia Conner.

Where is he? Showrunner Bruce Helford discusses this with TVLine.

Helford clarifies that some things from later seasons on Roseanne will not be on the new sitcom.
