Roseanne remains iconic and that’s due to everything on the show, including the characters, setting, and even the furniture. You actually have a chance to own the latter, as furniture from both the original show and The Conners will be auctioned off, with the money going to charity.

The latest episode of The Conners saw Katey Sagal’s character, Louise, moving into the Conner home. As such, Dan (John Goodman) decided to sell the furniture he bought for Roseanne when they first got married. It served as both a symbolic move, as well as one to free up space in the house. However, they will also sell the furniture in real life. Charity Buzz is hosting the auction, with benefits going to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

The items include a screen-used afghan, a dresser, a headboard, and two wooden nightstands. On top of that, there’s also a script signed by all of The Conners cast. Every item sold will come with a certificate of authenticity too, confirming they’re the real deal.

Sara Gilbert plays Darlene on the show and approves of the move both in the show and in real life. “Something I love about our show is that we get to address the fact that this is obviously a fictional group that represents a lot of people who are very kind, smart, intelligent, funny, good people that cannot break the cycle of poverty, and cannot break through the levels of how unfair things can be in this country,” she said to Movie Web.

Bidding for the items ends on December 17 at 4:07 p.m. EST, so there’s plenty of time to get a bid in if you’re interested.

‘The Conners’ Executive Producers Give an Update on Katey Sagal’s Recovery

Louise may be moving into the Conner house on the show, but Katey Sagal herself is still having a rough time moving around at all. After being struck by a car in mid-October, an executive producer on the show recently gave an update on her recovery.

The car struck Sagal while she was in the middle of a crosswalk. Though she’s currently in a wheelchair, her recovery is reportedly going well. Bruce Helford and Dave Caplan disclosed Sagal recently visited the set and filmed her first episode since the accident.

Talking to Pop Culture, Caplan said “She was determined to make it back on the set. And of course, we were delighted. We didn’t want to rush her, but we were delighted as soon as 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 guys in January,’ meaning she fully expects to be moving around just fine in a few months.”

Helford added though she was clearly experiencing discomfort, she “toughed it out.” Hopefully, she’s back up to speed by January as she said.
